In Academics, Announcements

For the first time, Cairn University will be offering fully online undergraduate programs. 

Following the successful execution of online graduate programs since 2013, the Fall 2020 launch of Cairn Online includes several undergraduate programs from the Schools of Business, Divinity, and Liberal Arts & Sciences. 

A Cairn Online task force assembled in Fall 2019 to begin to research, assess, and plan the implementation of undergraduate online programs for Fall 2021. However, due to the disruptions caused by COVID-19, the Board of Trustees and the Cabinet voted to expedite this process to launch the programs in Fall 2020. 

With these fully online undergraduate programs, the University plans to recruit mission-fit students who are better served in an online format. Asynchronous, online delivery accommodates students with busy schedules; coursework can be completed whenever and wherever students have time to dedicate to study throughout the week.

“We are excited about this new academic initiative and the opportunities it will give us to deliver a Cairn University education to a new population of students,” said Dr. Todd J. Williams, president of Cairn University. “We are committed to making sure these programs maintain the Cairn distinctives, and we know that an online undergraduate education that is centered on Christ and His Word will be a blessing to many.”

    Hi Lydia,
    I’m 2008 graduate from Masters of Science Christian Counseling Program. I was wondering if Cairn is offering any course from this program for online auditing.
    Thank you

      Hi Carol,
      Auditing is an available option for any Cairn Online course. As an alumna, you also get one free audit each semester! If you’re interested, you can contact for more information.
