Specialized studies in YWAM’s University of the Nations.
YWAM offers everything from one-day seminars to University of the Nations degrees. Learn the Bible, counseling, performing arts, healthcare, missions, and much more. YWAM courses, often called “schools,” combine theory with practical application. They usually last between three and nine months.
For most YWAM training programs including seminars, a Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS) is a prerequisite. If you are the parent of a prospective YWAM student, we have a page of parent resources for you.
