Online and Professional Studies (OPS) - Dean of Academics
Welcome to California Baptist University’s Online and Professional Studies (OPS) division. OPS specializes in “distance education” for working adults and others who need a flexible learning schedule. We offer university courses and degree programs both fully online and also in “hybrid” format (partly online and partly face-to-face). Regardless of the delivery medium, our mission is to provide a rigorous, high quality educational experience that honors the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) and enhances students, peers, and faculty relationships. Our diverse group of faculty prepare students for careers in the areas of: christian ministry, criminal justice, english, early childhood studies, business administration, communication, journalism, psychology, kinesiology, liberal studies, nursing, political science, sociology, organizational leadership, and disability studies.
All of OPS programs provide a unique blend of comprehensive, fully accredited academic preparation, taught by professors and professionals who are passionate about equipping current and future leaders. As a university, our mission is to prepare leaders who will be effective instruments to transform individuals, families, communities and nations around the world. You may be one of those leaders. OPS provides accredited program formats that allow our students to pursue their degree while remaining in their current jobs. As you consider your path in higher education, we invite you to consider California Baptist University’s Online & Professional Studies.
