School Details

Columbia International University began as Columbia Bible School in 1923, providing Bible-based scholarship and inspiration to local workers and future worldwide missionaries alike. CIU has proudly adapted with time and technology while staying true to their mission: “CIU educates people from a biblical worldview to impact the nations with the message of Christ.”

CIU offers undergraduate majors that lead to associate’s or bachelor’s degrees, in addition to master’s degrees and professional certificates in education, theology, counseling and intercultural studies. Students can take classes online or on campus. At CIU, we prepare students for ministry, the marketplace and missions, and our students graduate with a professional major along with a major in Bible.
