All training schools at YWAM Louisville are University of the Nations (U of N) courses. Founded on biblical principles, the U of N fulfills its commitment to Christ and his Great Commission by equipping men and women with spiritual, cultural, intellectual, and professional training, and inspiring them to both continually grow in their personal relationship with God while seeking to make him known among all peoples in all nations.
The U of N employs a modular system with 12 weeks of classroom coursework. Some courses require field internships or field assignments in their area of study. Some of the distinct characteristics of the U of N include:
- A live-learn lifestyle
- Intensive modular courses & immediate field application
- A creative atmosphere in the classroom
- One-on-one contact between staff and students
- Cross-cultural and multi-cultural training
- “Multiplier for Missions”
While the U of N has not applied for accreditation in any nation’s educational system, various accredited institutions throughout the world accept U of N transfer students and credits.
