Message from the Dean

AIU is a ministry school with no borders: No matter where you live and no matter what you do for a living, you can earn a degree from our school and apply it to your life. To reinforce that idea, we include a practical component to each degree program.

What we’re offering is, without a doubt, a new model of ministry school, which features our new, module-based programs with a work-study or capstone project component. And I am so excited to share this new model with you. 

If you have any questions – or YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING AIU! – please reach out to us. We would love to talk to you more about what’s happening at AIU and how you can benefit from an AIU educational experience.

Jennifer Brown, Dean
