For the first time, Cairn University is offering fully online undergraduate programs.
Following the successful execution of online graduate programs since 2013, the Fall 2020 launch of Cairn Online includes one associate’s degree program and 12 bachelor’s degree programs in divinity, business, and liberal arts and sciences. Several dual-level programs— where students can earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as few as five years—have also been approved for online delivery.
The Cairn Online Task Force assembled in Summer 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 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.”President Todd J. Williams
