Council for Christian Colleges and Universities Programs (CCCU)
Olivet Nazarene University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, which is comprised of more than 105 Christ-centered, accredited four-year liberal arts colleges and universities, each committed to academic excellence and to the integration of the Christian faith with learning and living. All Council study programs are open to Olivet students who qualify. Each of the programs are administered by appropriate departments of the University, and coordinated through the Council offices in Washington, D.C.
Council semester programs are designed for juniors and seniors who demonstrate competence in the classroom and Christian commitment in lifestyle. Plans for these semesters off campus should be begun during the freshman and sophomore years. Students register for these programs through the normal registration process, and credit is assigned by the Registrar according to the specific material covered in each program.
Programs available to Olivet students include the American Studies Program, the Latin American Studies Program, the Russian Studies Program, the Middle East Studies Program, the Los Angeles Film Study Center, the Oxford Summer Programme, the Oxford Scholars' Semester, the China Studies Program, the Australia Studies Centre, the Uganda Studies Program, the Contemporary Music Center, and the International Business Institute.
