Continuing and Cooperative Education

As need and opportunity arise, the college may provide sponsorship or resources for credit or non-credit training in a variety of educational programs. Courses are offered and programs administered through the appropriate academic departments or programs.

Continuing Education

Continuing education courses are designed to meet the educational needs of nontraditional students. A limited number of non-credit educational activities are awarded Continuing Education Units. A CEU is defined as "ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction." CEU awards are offered occasionally by academic departments or programs and may be earned as class or individual units. For further information concerning a specific academic program, contact the appropriate academic department, program, or the Office of Academic Affairs.

Cooperative Academic Programs

In collaboration with other institutions of higher education and through consortium agreements, Trevecca offers a number of off-campus for-credit learning opportunities to students. Because of the nature of these programs, students are advised to work with the financial aid office to determine whether or not aid is available to them for a particular cooperative academic program.

Cross-Registration for Nazarene Colleges and Universities

Trevecca Nazarene University participates in a cross-registration program with several other institutions of higher education which are related to the Church of the Nazarene. An undergraduate student may take up to 18 semester hours through cross-registration. To participate in this program, a student must be a second-semester sophomore in good academic standing. The student will be enrolled at Trevecca while attending classes at the host institution. Information and application materials for this program are available through the Office of Admissions. The student must have the approval of the dean of academic affairs, the dean of student development, director of financial services, and his/her academic advisor. The institutions participating in this program are: Eastern Nazarene College (Massachusetts), Mid-America Nazarene University (Kansas), Mount Vernon Nazarene University (Ohio), Northwest Nazarene University (Idaho), Olivet Nazarene University (Illinois), Point Loma Nazarene University (California), Southern Nazarene University (Oklahoma), and African Nazarene University (Kenya).

Trevecca also has a Study Abroad Agreement with European Nazarene College (Germany). The program and application requirements are the same as the Cross Registration procedures explained above; however, the financial arrangements are different from those in the Cross Registration program.

Council for Christian Colleges and Universities

Trevecca Nazarene University is one of over 102 members in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, a Washington D.C.-based organization which was founded in 1976. Students benefit directly from Trevecca's involvement in the CCCU through participation in Culture-Shaping Programs including the Washington-based American Studies Program (ASP), the Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC), the Contemporary Music Center (CMC) on Martha's Vineyard, the Washington Journalism Center (WJS) in Washington D.C., and the Culture-Crossing Programs including the Australian Studies Centre (ASC), the Latin American Studies Program (LASP) in Costa Rica, the Oxford Summer Programme at the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies in Oxford, England, the Russian Studies Program (RSP) in Moscow, the Middle-East Studies Program (MESP) in Cairo, the China Studies Program (CSP), the Scholars' Semester in Oxford (SSO), and the Uganda Studies Program (USP). A partial description of each program as presented by CCCU is listed below. Eligibility requirements and detailed program descriptions are available at www.bestsemester.com. Trevecca generally assigns credit as recommended by the individual programs. Some offer specific course credits; others offer variable credits. While Trevecca works with other institutions in the offering of these credits, matters related to approval, acceptance of coursework, the assignment of grades, and course titles and descriptions are determined by Trevecca personnel and must be in compliance with Trevecca's policies and procedures. Application materials and information on these programs can be secured from the Office of Academic Affairs. Completion of Trevecca application materials should be prerequisite to processing the online application available on the CCCU Web site.

American Studies Program

For 33 years, ASP has invited students to live in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Washington, DC and grapple with what it means to connect biblical faith to public life and vocation. We ask what is required of today's young leaders as they take their place among the established leaders of previous generations. It's experiential learning, it's definitely an adventure, and this is how we do it.

There are three primary components to the ASP experience: Internship, Community life, Coursework.

The Contemporary Music Center

The Contemporary Music Center on Martha's Vineyard provides students with the opportunity to live and work in the refining context of community while seeking to understand how God will have them integrate music, faith and business. The CMC offers three tracks: the Artist, Executive and Technical Tracks. The Artist Track is tailored to students considering careers as vocalists, musicians, songwriters, recording artists, performers and producers. The Executive Track is designed for business, arts management, marketing, communications and related majors interested in possible careers as artist managers, agents, record company executives, music publishers, concert promoters and entertainment industry entrepreneurs. The Technical Track prepares students for careers in live sound, concert lighting and studio recording. Students within each of the tracks receive instruction, experience and a uniquely Christ-centered perspective on creativity and the marketplace, while working together to create and market a recording of original music. Each track includes coursework, labs, directed study and a practicum. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.

Los Angeles Film Studies Center

Founded in 1991, the Los Angeles Film Studies Center is designed to train students to serve in various aspects of the film industry with both professional skill and Christian integrity. Each semester, students live, learn, and work in L.A. The curriculum consists of two required seminars, Hollywood Production Workshop and Theology in Hollywood, focusing on the role of film in culture and the relationship of faith to work in this very influential industry. In addition, students choose one elective course from a variety of offerings in film studies. Internships in various segments of the film industry provide students with hands-on experience. The combination of the internship and seminars allows students to explore the film industry within a Christian context and from a liberal arts perspective. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.

The Washington Journalism Center

The Washington Journalism Center (WJC) is a semester-long study program in Washington, DC, created for students interested in the field of journalism. While in Washington students will take classes focusing on the history and future of the media and how it relates to the public as well as to their personal writing skills. These classes - Foundations for Media Involvement; Reporting in Washington; and Washington, News and Public Discourse - combined with an internship at a top news publication will help students learn to integrate their faith in a journalism career. Students will stay in the Dellenback Center (along with students from the American Studies Program) and will participate in several service learning opportunities within the DC community.

Australia Studies Centre

The Australia Studies Centre is a cultural studies program with an arts focus, based in Sydney, Australia. The program is run by the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), an international association of intentionally Christian colleges and universities. Designed to provide undergraduates of all majors and career interests with the opportunity to study the arts and theology in Sydney, the program also emphasizes Indigenous studies and faithful, global involvement.

Cultural Interaction is a large factor of the ASC semester. Students participate in service projects and live in homestays with local families to help them encounter the Australia that tourists never see. From art and ministry to drama and dance, students attending ASC have every opportunity to pursue their passions and interests with other Christians from around North America and the world even as they compare and contrast the Australia of myths and movies with the realities of everyday life. Throughout the semester, ASC students engage the history of Australia's Indigenous peoples and discover their modern identities and present realities.

China Studies Program

The China Studies Program enables students to engage this ancient and intriguing country from the inside. While living in and experiencing Chinese civilization firsthand, students participate in seminar courses on the historical, cultural, religious, geographic and economic realities of this strategic and populous nation. In addition to the study of standard Chinese language, students are given opportunities such as assisting Chinese students learning English or helping in an orphanage, allowing for one-on-one interaction. Students choose between completing a broad Chinese Studies concentration or a Business Concentration that includes a three-week, full-time internship. The program introduces students to the diversity of China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an, Xiamen and Hong Kong. This interdisciplinary, cross cultural program enables students to deal with this increasingly important part of the world in an informed, Christ centered way. Students earn 16-17 semester hours of credit.

Latin American Studies Program

Students of CCCU colleges have the opportunity to live and learn in Latin America through the Latin American Studies Program, based in San Jose, Costa Rica. The program introduces students to a wide range of experiences through the study of the language, literature, culture, politics, history, economics, ecology and religion of the region. Living with a Costa Rican family, students experience and become a part of the day-to-day lives of Latin Americans.  Students also take part in an internship/practicum and travel to nearby Central American nations. Students participate in one of four concentrations: Latin American Studies (offered both fall and spring terms); Advanced Language and Literature (designed for Spanish majors and offered both fall and spring terms); International Business (offered only in fall terms); and Environmental Science (offered only during spring terms). Students in all concentrations earn 16-18 semester credits.

Middle East Studies Program

The Middle East Studies Program, based in Cairo, Egypt, allows Council students to explore and interact with the complex and strategic world of the modern Middle East. The interdisciplinary seminars give students the opportunity to explore the diverse religious, social, cultural and political traditions of Middle Eastern peoples. Students also study the Arabic language and work as volunteers with various organizations in Cairo. Through travel to Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Turkey, students are exposed to the diversity and dynamism of the region. At a time of tension and change in the Middle East, MESP encourages and equips students to relate to the Muslim world in an informed, constructive and Christ centered manner. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.

Russian Studies Program

RSP students are exposed to the depth and diversity of the culture during a semester spent in Russia's three largest cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg and Nizhni Novgorod. In addition to three seminar courses entitled History and Sociology of Religion in Russia; Russian Peoples, Culture and Literature; and Russia in Transition, students receive instruction in the Russian language, choosing either 4 or 6 semester hours of language coursework. RSP strives to give students as wide an experience as possible in this complex nation. Students spend time in Moscow, the heart of both medieval and modern Russia. Students also spend 12 weeks in Nizhni Novgorod, a strategic city on the Volga River. After six weeks of language instruction, students live with a Russian family for the remainder of their stay in this city. Students participate in a service opportunity in Nizhni Novgorod. The program also includes time in the complex and intriguing city of St. Petersburg, the Russian "window to the West." Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.

The Scholars' Semester in Oxford

SSO is designed for students interested in doing intensive scholarship in this historic seat of learning. Working with academic tutors, students hone their skills and delve into the areas that interest them most. As Visiting Students of Oxford University and members of Wycliffe Hall, students have the privilege to study and learn in one of university's historic halls. SSO students enroll in a Primary and Secondary Tutorial, an Integrative Seminar and the course Christianity and Cultures. The SSO is designed for students interested in the fields of Classics, English & Literature, Theology & Religious Studies, Philosophy, and History, though all majors may apply. Applicants are generally honors and other very high-achieving students. Students earn 17 semester hours of credit.

The Oxford Summer Programme

Seminars (and their attached tutorials) are given on specialized topics under the direction of expert Oxford academics in the areas of history, religious studies, philosophy, English literature, the history of art, and history of science. The programme is structured for rising college sophomores, juniors, and seniors, graduate and seminary students, non-traditional students, teachers, and those enrolled in continuing education programs.

Uganda Studies Program

The Uganda Studies Program provides students with immersion in a local community and broad exposure to a variety of people and places in Uganda and neighboring Rwanda. Students in the Uganda Studies Emphasis (USE) live on campus at Uganda Christian University in Mukono Uganda, sharing their lives with university students fromUganda and other nations of Africa. Students in the Intercultural Ministry and Missions Emphasis (IMME) live with host families within walking distance of the university, experiencing life as a Ugandan family member. All USP students take classes from UCU professors and share their meals with UCU students. USP students will not leave Uganda without being exposed to and engage in the realities of African Life. In addition to the core experience course, students will choose from an approved selection of courses from the UCU curriculum to earn up to 16 hours of credit.

Army ROTC

Trevecca has a cooperative agreement with the Army ROTC at Vanderbilt University in which students from Trevecca may receive credit for ROTC courses on their degree program at Trevecca. Upon successful completion of the bachelor's degree program at Trevecca and successful completion of the ROTC program, the student will receive a commission in the Army as well as the degree from Trevecca. Upon graduation, there is an active duty and/or reserve duty obligation for scholarship students. There is no military commitment until entering the Advanced Program.

Students who are enrolled full time at Trevecca may take and receive credit for Army ROTC through Vanderbilt University. In addition, Trevecca students can elect to minor in military science through the Army ROTC programs at Vanderbilt University. Students may receive the minor after earning 18 credit hours in military science courses. Trevecca students may elect to use the ROTC hours as elective credits rather than a minor.

Students who participate in the Army ROTC program under the provisions of cross-town agreements receive all benefits, privileges, and compete for scholarships on the same basis as full-time students enrolled at Vanderbilt University.

Army Officer Education (ARMY ROTC)

The Army Officer Education Program (ROTC) is a sequential and progressive academic program that provides pre-commission training for college-educated men and women who desire to serve as commissioned officers in the active Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. As the Army's largest commissioning source, it fulfills a vital role in providing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technological Army. Admission is open to both men and women who meet mental, moral, and physical qualifications.

Training goes beyond the typical college classroom and is designed to build individual confidence and self-discipline, instill values and ethics, and develop leadership skills. The course load consists of one course per semester. Each succeeding year will address course topics in greater depth as students receive feedback on their leadership style and assume positions of greater responsibility within the program. Graduates are commissioned as Second Lieutenants and will enter active duty with follow-on employment in the Army Reserves, National Guard, or active duty. Educational delays may be granted for graduates who desire to pursue advanced degrees prior to entry on active duty.

Scholarships. Students can earn merit scholarships in several ways. High school seniors and graduates compete for four-year scholarships that are determined by local competition among Vanderbilt applicants. Although determined locally, the application process is centrally managed. Scholarship students receive financial benefits that cover the cost of full tuition scholarships each year, an annual $1,200 book allowance, all uniforms, and a monthly tax-free stipend beginning at $300 for freshmen and increasing to $500 for seniors. All students enrolled in the Army ROTC program are provided textbooks and uniforms at no expense. Contracted non-scholarship students also receive the monthly stipend from $300 to $500 depending on the academic level. For more information, see the Web site at www.armyrotc.com.

Summer training. Students have the opportunity to attend several training events over the summer.

Leadership development and assessment course (LDAC) - This five-week leadership exercise at Fort Lewis, Washington, is a commissioning requirement. This is normally done between the junior and senior years. Travel, room, and board are provided free, and cadets are paid approximately $700.

Cultural Understanding and Language Program (CULP) Internships – Students are encouraged to spend a semester, special or summer session in academic studies abroad if feasible. Special incentives are available to further attract qualified students to these valuable programs.

Cadet Troop and Leadership Training Internships (CTLT) – CTLT Internships are leadership development opportunities for students who are placed with military organizations throughout the world to gain perspective and understanding or the role of the military officer.

Cadet Professional Field Training (CPFT) – Airborne, Air Assault, Mountain Warfare, Robin Sage (US Special Forces), Helicopter Flight Training, and Sapper.

Other training opportunities exist for qualified applicants who are interested.

Commissioning and career opportunities. A commission in the U.S. Army is a distinctive honor earned through hard work, demonstrated commitment, and a desire to serve the nation. Post-graduate military education, usually starting within six months of graduation and commissioning and continuing through the officer's service career, begins with the basic officer leadership course followed by officer basic course that qualify new lieutenants in their specific branch of service. Education delays are available for critical specialties requiring postgraduate civilian education such as law and medical degrees.
