CHRISTIAN Heritage College is a fully accredited private higher education provider at Carindale, Brisbane.

A spokesperson said the college “aspires to model a Christian higher education alternative”.

“Commencing from a vision birthed by Order of Australia recipient, Emeritus Professor Brian Millis in 1986, CHC exists to re-imagine how we think about human flourishing, vocation, calling and the integration of faith and learning across all fields of human endeavor,” the spokesperson said.

“At CHC, we passionately believe that to educate – stemming from the root word, educe, ‘to draw out’ – requires a process of formation and holistic development.

“CHC courses are therefore not just about gaining a degree or a specific skill set for future employment (as important as these are) but, rather, the development of whole persons.

“Arthur Holmes once contended: The question to ask about education is not ‘What can I do with it?’ but rather ‘What is it doing to me – as a person?’

“Education – good higher education – has to do with the making of persons.”

CHC specialises in degree-level courses that are “people-shaping and people-making”.

“Our courses celebrate people making principles and are taught by an exceptional staff who integrate faith-learning imperatives in all that they do,” the college spokesperson said.

With more than 20 courses across four major fields – Business, Education and Humanities, Social Sciences and Ministries – CHC provides a Christian alternative for students seeking a university-level qualification.

“Whilst our courses are taught from a Christian perspective, we welcome students from all backgrounds and traditions,” the spokesperson said.

“Our alumni are found in professions across the globe and some are best-practice leaders in their chosen fields.”

CHC has more than 2000 graduates.

It will have an open day on August 22, offering a chance for visitors to meet college staff and students.

“You will be surprised by the advantages offered by affordable, private, Christian higher education that seeks to transform students to transform their world,” the spokesperson said.
