January 15, 2019

smiling graduatesYou’ve heard us talk a lot about the quality of a Cedarville education. We're excited to share new information that affirms the results of our efforts and the caliber of our students and alumni.

In a recent survey of our 2018 graduates, we found that an amazing 98.3% of the graduating class was either employed or in graduate school within six months of commencement. That’s well above national averages and evidence that our students are well-prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation. Employers seek out Cedarville graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic, and character.

In fact, for the past five years, our placement rates have consistently topped national averages, as shown in the graph below.

And, not only are our graduates prepared to obtain good jobs in desirable career fields, they are being equipped to serve God and share the message of the Gospel wherever He leads them. That’s what truly sets Cedarville apart.

P.S. Our Career Services office is one of the big reasons for our graduates' placement success. Career Services offers seven career fairs each year to help students connect with potential employers and build a professional network. The Career Services office also supports students with resume preparation, interview training, internship placements, career interest surveys, advising on choice of major, and much more!

How a College's Graduation Rate Can Save You Money

January 10, 2019

grad cap on pile of moneyWe all know students who started their four-year college journey… six years ago. Whether they are struggling to pass classes, basking in the learning experience, or simply switching their major too many times, their college education can quickly acquire an even larger price tag when eight semesters turn into 12.

One of the best ways a university can save you money is to help your student graduate on time. Consider the additional costs if students take five or more years to finish. Consider the cost if they never complete their educational goals!

At Cedarville, we make it a priority to help students graduate on time, saving them money but more importantly, allowing them to begin using their career to make an impact for Christ sooner. Today's post provides helpful information about graduation rates and what to consider as you compare college options.

Cedarville's B.A.+M.Div. Provides Faster Pathway to Ministry

December 6, 2018

Bible text close upIf your student is planning to pursue vocational ministry, we have a great opportunity for them at Cedarville! 

At Cedarville University, we are committed to equipping Christian young people for Gospel impact and Kingdom service. Nowhere is this more evident than our Accelerated B.A.+M.Div. dual degree program. This unique program allows students to earn a B.A. in biblical studies and a Master of Divinity in just five years, creating a faster pathway to ministry and saving them thousands of dollars in tuition over a traditional M.Div. approach.

And, students can customize their M.Div. by choosing a specialty track that fits their ministry goals. They can choose from academic ministry, biblical apologetics, biblical care and counseling, missions, pastoral ministry, women's ministry, worship and theology, and youth and family ministry.

Watch this short video to hear Dr. Jason Lee, Dean of the School of Biblical and Theological Studies, explain how this innovative, accelerated program works and effectively equips students for full-time vocational ministry. It's another great reason to choose Cedarville University!

Career Fairs Open Opportunities for Students

October 11, 2018

Career FairCedarville University is committed to equipping your student with challenging academics integrated with a biblical worldview. But we don’t stop there. Our Career Services department works hard to create opportunities for students to move into career positions immediately after graduation.

Last month, Career Services held its first career fair of the year, with nearly 100 companies attending, including well-known organizations like Honda, Boeing, Procter & Gamble, and General Electric. Students gained valuable experience communicating with potential employers while expanding their network of contacts.

Each year, students land internships and permanent career positions as a result of these career fairs. Career Services has several more career fairs planned for this year, giving students additional opportunities to search for jobs and hone their interviewing skills.

These career fairs are just one of the reasons that 98.3% of Cedarville graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.
