Our learning model develops students by bringing together students from vastly different disciplines (Film, Digital Media, Ministry and Business). Collaboration in education is an all-encompassing movement affecting organisations in all sectors across art forms, disciplines, cultures, institutions, and other third parties. The integrated degree design encourages learner collaboration from vastly different disciples, worldviews and perspectives through the development of interdisciplinary communication and projects. The Christian Ministry Leadership major shares common courses with students from other disciplines:

This can make people better leaders, enrich the understanding of others, and develop empathy for the persons in their care. Arguably Christian Ministry Leadership is undertaken by people, for people with people for the purpose of impacting our communities and each other in positive ways. This is our degrees secret sauce.
