Course Exemptions

All new Cru missionaries are required to complete three theological courses:

  1. Intro to Christian Theology
  2. Bible Study Methods
  3. Intro to Mission

In order to be considered for a course exemption from Intro to Christian Theology or Bible Study Methods, you must have completed an equivalent graduate-level course. To qualify for an exemption from Intro to Mission, you need to have completed either an undergraduate or graduate Intro to Mission course.

Even if you are exempt from Intro to Christian Theology, you will still be asked to audit this course because of the pivotal role it plays in introducing the theological identity of Cru.In past years New Staff with graduate theological degrees have served as teaching assistants (TA’s).

Each course from which you are exempt will lower the cost of the conference by about $300.
