Anderson University and Ivy Tech Community College Announce Christian Ministries Articulation Agreement


Anderson University (AU) and Ivy Tech Community College are proud to announce a new articulation agreement in Christian ministries, through which students will have the opportunity to earn a dual degree. 

Ivy Tech graduates with an associate of arts or an associate of science degree may transfer and apply a minimum of 60 credit hours from that completed degree to the requirements for Anderson University’s bachelor of arts degree in Christian ministries

This transfer agreement is available to Ivy Tech students completing any associate of science or associate of arts degree regardless of the degree major. Ivy Tech transfer students will be expected to complete all upper-division core curriculum requirements at Anderson University, in addition to the faith courses built into the Christian ministries major.

Anderson University and Ivy Tech have a strong, ongoing academic partnership,” said Joel Shrock, AU provost. “We are excited to expand our relationship to include this articulation agreement between Ivy Tech’s associate of arts and associate of science degrees and AU’s bachelor of arts degree in Christian ministries.”

“This articulation agreement with Anderson University is especially exciting for Ivy Tech because it is a direct pathway to a bachelor’s degree in Christian ministries,” said Russ Baker, vice president of Academic Affairs at Ivy Tech. “It also offers great flexibility because it allows students to choose from any of our more than 30 associate of science degree pathways, or our associate of arts in liberal arts. This is the first pathway of its kind for Ivy Tech that leads directly to a degree and a career in Christian ministries.”
