Director of Student Services
Welcome to VIU!
Welcome to Veritas International University! As an evangelical non-profit independent university, offering nine degree programs, we strive to give each student the opportunity to learn apologetics, archaeology, Bible, theology, and pastoral studies from some of the most humble, experienced, and knowledgeable evangelical scholars in the country such as Joseph Holden, Ron Rhodes, H. Wayne House, Randall Price, Winfried Corduan, William Nix, Forrest Weiland, Mark Hanna, Miguel Angel Endara, and others. Your learning in the classroom will not only build your mind and forge new relationships, it will also nourish your spirit and soul.
In order to accommodate busy daytime schedules, our residential courses are offered in the evening (6:30pm to 9:30pm) through traditional 15-week Fall and Spring semesters. In addition, our intensive module courses can be used to supplement your semester schedule. Modules are 15-week courses where students meet in the classroom for one week in the evening. After the first week is complete, students and instructor work together through substantive and regular interaction for the remaining 14-weeks.
Our Distance Learning (DL) program is also a convenient option for some students who cannot relocate to southern California or make trips to the VIU campus. Each DL degree program may be completed without residency requirement.
We hope your time at VIU will not only be educational, but inspirational. Whenever you’re ready to make the transition into deeper study of God’s word and to explore His calling on your life, we will be there to assist your next step towards admission and enrollment.
