Professor Buggeln with Students Christ College students are concurrently enrolled in one of Valparaiso University's other colleges--Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, or Nursing--where they earn their bachelor's degrees. Study in Christ College complements all academic programs, and many Christ College courses fulfill the University's general education requirements.


Christ College honors courses do not require more work than other courses; rather, they invite the more curious student into the rigors and rewards of the life of the mind by offering him or her an integrated approach to university studies and subtler methods of independent inquiry. The Christ College curriculum extends from freshman year to graduation.

Christ College students often spend a semester of the sophomore, junior, or senior year studying at one of Valparaiso University's overseas study centers in Cambridge, England; Puebla, Mexico; Reutlingen, Germany; Hangzhou, China; Namibia, Africa; or in other off-campus study programs. VU and Christ College credit may be earned for this work.
