Set in a rural environment, the campus presents a quiet, intimate setting, fostering a close-knit academic community. KCU is known for its focus on ministry and Christian education, offering a variety of undergraduate degree programs in areas such as Biblical Studies, Business Administration, Teacher Education, and Nursing, which is one of its more prominent programs.
