Core Values


Faith and Learning

Offering an understanding of God and His creation, a Christian worldview is what sets an APOU education apart from that gained at a secular college or university. Other schools may address the whats and hows, but Azusa Pacific Online University also addresses the whys. Other students may learn where the human race has been, but APOU students will also learn where it is headed. Others may explore how life could be lived. But Azusa Pacfic Online students will consider how it should be lived. APOU will help students integrate faith and learning in meaningful ways.

How does faith and learning connect? Learn more about APOU’s commitment to faith integration and the Azusa Pacific God First motto on our blog, Inside APOU.
