Leaders and counselors are busy people. Many want to further their development and add new skills, but a master’s is not a fit for them. Many have enjoyed Dr. Townsend’s competence-plus-character growth model as it applies to counseling or leadership and want further training. The credential programs in coaching, counseling and organizational leadership are a good place to start. 

The program curricula are based on Dr. Townsend’s competence-plus character growth model discussed in his many books, writings and teachings. Students will be educated in several other key arenas of information, including scriptural teachings, theory and research, and neuroscience.

As a Christian college of the liberal arts, Huntington offers a wide range of degree programs. Four out of five Huntington University professors have the highest degree in their field (a figure higher than any other evangelical college in Indiana). The student-faculty ratio is kept low, enabling each student to be mentored by outstanding Christian scholars.

Huntington University offers high-quality graduate degrees and professional education challenging you to engage in experiential-aimed scholarship and spiritual development, integrate what you learn into your unique professional context, and transform the community in which you live and serve.

Classes for adult degree programs are offered in Huntington, Fort Wayne, and Columbia City as well as online. Classes are offered in an accelerated five-week format, with classes held one night a week. Online classes allow for maximum flexibility with no requirements of being online at specific times.
