Partnership with Columbia International University

Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina, USA, is internationally recognized as one of the leading North American seminaries with a particular emphasis on cross-cultural training. Few, however, are aware that CIU offers accredited programs at its German location, which brings a Columbia education within reach not only for German-speaking, but also for English-speaking students living in Europe. Through the ESCT-Korntal campus, English speakers can complete the requirements towards undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate degrees.

Coursework can also be taken at the CIU campus in Columbia, S.C., or transferred in from other accredited seminaries. Online courses are yet another option to continue studying while living in Europe. ESCT-Korntal operates in partnership with the Association of Evangelical Missions in Germany and Switzerland and is the academic department of the Academy for World Mission.

We celebrated 25 years of partnership only recently - it is a seasoned cross-cultural educational partnership!
