From the very start, back in 1874, Andrews University has placed serious scholarship, quality research and a strong focus on practical Christianity first on the list of things we think are important about attendance at a Christian university. We started out small. Mr. Goodloe Bell, a teacher, started a tiny school with only 12 students in Battle Creek, Michigan.
At Andrews we are serious about giving you choices. We offer options in undergraduate, graduate and doctoral studies. If you feel like spending a year abroad, you can choose from an impressive range of opportunities at Andrews affiliate schools or service posts around the globe. We are real people at Andrews. Whatever it is you choose to do here, we aim to make sure that you achieve balance between theory and practice, and experience growth on your personal spiritual journey.
Andrews University faculty, staff, and students are involved in a variety of research projects to the extent that U.S. News has ranked Andrews University as being an "overperforming" school. This means that we are doing much more than our reputation indicates. This is particularly true in the area of research, where peers do not realize just how much research and creative scholarship is going on here at Andrews.
