Make a Gift to Academics
College of Architecture, Visual Arts & Design
What makes CAVAD truly unique is that we teach these programs from a Christian worldview, encouraging students to use their creative talents to engage and inspire the world around them. We focus on helping students envision the powerful ways that God might use them in their chosen professions, whether as an architect, graphic designer, web designer, filmmaker, or any kind of artist.
School of Nursing
Let me be the first to thank you for your interest in the CBU School of Nursing, one of the best private Christian nursing schools in California. Though the preparation to become a highly qualified nurse is demanding, the practice of nursing is one of the most noble and rewarding callings that an individual can pursue. The need and opportunity for skilled nurses has never been greater. The combination of long-term factors, including a growing elderly population and changes in state and national health care regulations, are driving a demand for nurses that will continue to grow in the years to come.
College of Allied Health
Transforming lives through the health professions is what we are all about and the College of Allied Health is a great place to seek out how God will use you to serve others. Our purpose in the College of Allied Health is to mentor and train students who have a heart for service. Combining rigorous scientific training with opportunities to be the hands and feet of Christ are the hallmarks of our school.
College of Behavioral Sciences
The School of Behavioral Sciences at California Baptist University is one of the top Christian behavioral science colleges in California and was established for the purpose of providing instruction, courses, degrees and certificate programs in the Behavioral Sciences. The pursuit of accurate historical and contemporary knowledge of the behavioral sciences is coupled with the skills necessary for the direct application of that knowledge in both secular and religious contexts. In addition, a prime goal of the School is the development of the appropriate relationship between the Behavioral Sciences and biblical truth. The School of Behavioral Sciences houses undergraduate programs, graduate programs in Counseling Psychology, Counseling Ministry and Forensic Psychology, and the Center for the Study of Human Behavior.
School of Christian Ministries
The mission of CBUâs School of Christian Ministries is to train a new generation of Christian leaders who will actively serve Christ and His church. This means that we enthusiastically teach both students who will become pastors, missionaries, ministers, as well as students who want to apply the Christian worldview to other disciplines. We offer a variety of academic programs to accommodate such varied interests and goals. Some programs are designed specifically for those who plan to enter vocational ministry. Others are designed for students who work toward other majors. Many CBU students who select other majors still choose to double-major or minor in one of our programs, taking advantage of the opportunity to grow in their insight into the Bible and Christian worldview, as well as their ability to serve the church and the world.
College of Engineering
The College of Engineering at California Baptist University is a top Christian engineering college in California and is growing rapidly in terms of both students and facilities. In our first year, we started work on new labs and classroom space and have received numerous gifts and grants including a grant from the National Science Foundation. In addition to our four areas of study, students and faculty are focusing their research efforts into the following areas: green technologies, rehabilitation technologies and technologies designed to improve life in developing parts of the world.
College of Arts & Sciences

School of Education
Metcalf School of Education programs enjoy a stellar reputation in the area, such that our candidates are at the top of the recruiting efforts at several of the surrounding school districts.Â Our faculty team is comprised of dedicated and competent professionals who develop mentoring relationships with their students and highlight relevant Christian principles and truths to support and reinforce the learning. Our student support team is equally dedicated to candidatesâ success and provides individual support and encouragement from the moment students inquire about the programs to the point of exiting with their credentials and/or graduate degree.
School of Music
The Collinsworth School of Music is one of theÂ best music colleges in California because we hold our students to high standards, standards that encourage them to be the very best persons, students and musicians that they can be. As a teacher and conductor I can expect a great deal from my students, but routinely find that these high expectations become part of their individual journey toward lives of excellence. In exchange for the hard work they commit, CBU musicians find a challenging program of study, an outstanding community environment and limitless performance opportunities in the United States and abroad. If you have a gift and passion for music, then you have something very special to offer the world.
