YWAM is also a university. The University of the Nations (UN) aims to equip students to serve in all spheres of society and in all nations. The purpose of UofN is to teach students how to apply biblical truth practically and fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
"Then Jesus approached them and said, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And I will always be with you, until the end of time."
YWAM's "vestibular" is the Discipleship Training School (DTS) which is required to complete before taking any other UofN course.
The training system at the UofN is totally different from that of other universities.
What would be semesters in common universities, at YWAM, are full courses.
Another peculiarity is the fact that the construction of this training takes place in various parts of Brazil and the world. The YWAM/UofN student does not necessarily enter YWAM with the intention of obtaining a diploma, but rather to be trained in missions and develop their vocation to act in a missional and integral way in missions, in their work, in their church and in other areas for which God directs you.
The University of the Nations offers associate, bachelor's and master's degrees at its seven faculties.
The seven faculties were designed to bring God's truth and hope to the seven most influential areas of society. These faculties are:
Individual degree programs are listed at the beginning of each section of Faculty . When the student decides to take a Graduation, the student consults a Academic advisor accredited by the corresponding Faculty. A “Graduate Planning Form” is prepared by the advisor for approval by the Faculty's International Dean, and is submitted to the International Rectory.
Some of the students at the University of the Nations receive transfer credits for some of their courses. These credits have been awarded by other higher education institutions rather than accreditation agencies. In addition, certain universities accept UofN graduates in advanced studies (usually master's programs).
