About Rize Partnership Programs
We are offering these high demand, skills-focused programs through an innovative nationwide consortium of over 75 colleges and universities much like ENC. As a student in these programs, you enjoy the opportunity to attend a small Christian college while developing specialized skills that will prepare you for careers in some of today’s fastest-growing fields. In your major and your general education coursework, you will have the opportunity to develop a strong Christian worldview while the courses in the RIZE partnership programs will supplement that work by exposing you to industry experts who will teach you and students at other consortium institutions virtually. We refer to these programs as skilled pathways because they emphasize the in-demand skill-sets that employers are saying they need. Students who complete all of the courses in a particular program will have their completion of the courses recorded as a minor on their transcript upon graduation, but many of the individual courses and programs offer opportunities to complete industry certifications or prepare you to complete certification exams that can also be valuable additions to a resume.
