Recommended Posts

Located in the vibrant city of Anderson, South Carolina, Anderson University is a selective, comprehensive university offering bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees on campus and online. Our nine Colleges and Schools offer 36 majors, 50 concentrations, and 29 minors. Also, we offer seven master's degrees that range from an MBA to a Master of Music in Music Education. Moreover, through our Graduate School of Christian Ministry, we offer a Doctor of Ministry.
We are ranked as one of the best regional universities in the South by U.S. News and World Report and The Princeton Review. In addition to our top tier academic ranking, A.U. has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the #7 Most Innovative Regional University in the South and #27 Best Value School among Regional Universities in the South.
At the heart of our educational program is an uncompromising commitment to the liberal arts as a means of preparing students with both breadth and depth of knowledge they need not only to be successful in the career of their choice, but to be successful in all realms of life – in family, community, work, and church.
Anderson University is an academic community, affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention, providing a challenging education grounded in the liberal arts, enhanced by professional and graduate programs and a co-curricular focus on character, servant leadership, and cultural engagement. This is a diverse community that is Christ-centered, people-focused, student-oriented, quality-driven, and future-directed.
For God and humanity, Anderson University seeks to be an innovative, entrepreneurial, premier comprehensive university where liberal arts, professional studies, and graduate studies thrive within an uplifting, welcoming, and distinctively Christian community of diverse faculty, staff and students dedicated to intellectually rigorous learning, a caring and hospitable campus culture, and personal transformation.
God will lead you to your professional calling through A.U. Through our nationally-recognized (named by U.S. News & World Report as the #27 Best Value School among Regional Universities in the South) rigorous academic programs you'll discover your strengths. Whether you're a student in The South Carolina School of the Arts, a business major, or enrolled in one of our other schools, A.U. professors will help you develop your gifts for your present and future journeys.
However, beyond academic preparation, you will receive confirmation from your mentors and peers that you are discovering God's spiritual call. Moreover, all A.U. students, regardless of major, will gain a deeper understanding of the Bible and a Christian worldview.
You want to be the best teacher, doctor, or graphic designer you can be, but you also want professors who value God's place in your life and future. Through bachelor's and grad programs, our colleges and schools expect solid preparation for your calling in education, the sciences, business, the arts, ministry, or criminal justice. However, we also expect to learn your discipline with the values that Jesus taught: compassion, humility, gentleness, and patience.
You'll receive more than the knowledge to start your career at A.U. You'll develop the intellectual muscle to adapt to the continually changing needs of the economy—a trait that'll make you a valuable contributor to organizations throughout your life. By intellectual muscle, we mean the thinking skills to conceptualize and solve problems and acquire, assess, and employ evolving information. A.U.'s core classes, whether you are a kinesiology major, an art major is taking a Foundations class or an A.U. Honors Program students will give you the knowledge to build and change careers as the future unfolds.
The ability to work well with others is a top characteristic employer in our state said they seek in a recent survey. People who visit A.U. often remark at the friendliness of our students, faculty, and staff. When you and your family drive up to our residence halls with your belongings for your first year, don't be surprised that a group of students unloads your car and brings all your things to your room before you return to your car with your dorm key. Hospitality is part of the culture here, and it's fueled by our desire to follow Jesus's lead of loving people through serving them.
Throughout the year and during school breaks, A.U. students carry out 15,000 hours of volunteer service. Recent projects have included cleaning up flood-damaged homes in a hurricane-hit city, establishing a program to help girls in Honduras escape poverty, and delivering health care and comfort to residents of a nursing home, orphanage, and cancer ward in Nicaragua.
Computers used to be devices mastered only by people who knew computer-programming languages. However, today's mobile devices are computers we use with ease and find it hard to live without. The people who led this revolution of making computers user-friendly solved the problem of making the power of computers accessible to everybody. Whether you are studying science, interior design, or another discipline, expect to learn and practice creative problem-solving at A.U.
As a student here, you'll receive state-of-the-art instruction through courses specially designed to use mobile devices' power, courses that encourage your creative thinking. Our education majors are taught that they are "builders of knowledge," from the craft of teaching to the imparting of subject content to students. Our interior design majors and art majors regularly win national awards for their creative solutions to sustainability and design contests. Like research? You can work at our center for cancer research, through which recent students are studying plant extracts they harvested from the Amazon jungle—interested in entrepreneurship? Help create projects that help communities in need to become self-sufficient.
