UUC uses an asynchronous method of online course delivery. Therefore, students from anywhere in the world can access and participate in the classroom at any time. In contrast to synchronous course delivery method, in which teachers and students have to participate in the class at the same time, the students and teachers in a synchronous classroom participate in the class anytime and not necessary at the same time during the assigned period. The asynchronous method has been proven effective and convenient to students and teachers living in different parts of the world, who work and rest at a different time but still can participate in the same classroom.

Degree completion time greatly depends on the chosen program and the amount of transfer credit you may have. For undergraduate programs, the more credits you transfer in, the faster you’ll complete your degree. You may be able to earn credits from professional training, through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), or by utilizing credit from previous college courses you have taken. For graduate and master’s programs, it depends on the program and the amount of time you have available to spend on your classes. Most undergraduate and graduate programs have a certain number of courses that must be completed in order to graduate.
Online learning does not make a difference where you are located while completing your degree program. UUC’s classes can be continued from anywhere in the world as long as you have access to the internet and a computer that meets UUC’s technology requirements.
When and how long you login during the week is completely up to you. UUC offers you the flexibility to complete assignments at your own pace, at a time convenient to you within each week. Courses are constructed so as there are no required login times during the week. As long as you meet the deadlines specified by the professor for turning in assignments, you can complete your assignment at any time of the day or night. This level of flexibility allows you to fit school into your busy schedule, rather than attempting to fit your schedule around school, while at the same time providing enough structure to keep you on track to ensure successful completion.

As in most universities, after completion of a bachelor’s degree, leaders choose to learn more by selecting and completing a set of courses that leads to a “Graduate Certificate”.
The basic differences are length of time, price and level of learning. The program for a graduate certificate is 18 credit hours vs. 42 for an MA and 84 for the MDiv. Since the cost of the programs is calculated per credit hour, the price of completion is relative to the number of credit hours.
Each certificate program offers Master’s level specialization for a specific sphere of Christian ministry.
In the future, we plan to offer 6 programs. For 2017, UUC will offer these two: the Certificates in Christian Education and in Spirituality. [put links to the courses for each of these]
Admission requirements for the UUC Graduate Certificate programs are the same of those of the two Master’s level graduate degree programs
