Life after CSU

Career Potential 

You will be prepared to help others find freedom from addiction in roles such as:

  • Working in addiction treatment facilities
  • Serving as a lay counselor with your local church
  • Pursuing a master’s degree, which can allow you to be certified for Addictions Counseling

The way that CSU integrates a biblical worldview into everything is just amazing. When I talk with colleagues who have graduated from other unnamed Christian schools, they don’t know how to integrate Scripture into their field. They don’t know how to make it more than a ‘read this verse and call me in the morning,’ mentality.
