As of January 1, 2014, the Australia Studies Centre will move from Sydney, where it has been located since 2004, to Brisbane, Australia and partner with Christian Heritage College (CHC). While this means a change in location, we believe that CHC has unique advantages for students studying in Australia especially in the range of classes it offers for ASC students. CHC offers majors in:

BUSINESS: Accounting, Marketing, Management, HR Management.

EDUCATION: Early, Primary, Middle and Secondary. CHC also offers content-area units in the areas of English, History, Drama, Business, Accounting and Biblical Studies.
