Biblical Worldview

Shiloh University students come from different Christian churches and backgrounds. Therefore, the University faculty attempts to present courses in a manner that emphasizes knowledge, skills, and attitudes that inform a biblical worldview, undergirding varied expressions of the oneness and mission of Christ’s Church.

Shiloh University’s curriculum is designed to help students form a view from which they can perceive the working of God throughout history and recognize God’s moving in the world today. A biblical worldview will help students become an effective instrument of Christ in their communities and cultures.

Program Format

Shiloh University programs are offered in a 100% online format and do not have residency requirements of any kind. The University conducts three trimesters of study per year, each term being 15 weeks in length.
