Engage. Enrich. Empower.

Engage
At Methodist University you will take advantage of small classes, averaging 22 students, which enable classroom participation. Professors teach and encourage you to learn in an active setting. Outside the classroom you will get involved in one or more of our almost 100 clubs and student organizations, cheer on (or compete for) the 20 MU Monarch NCAA Division III athletic teams, and have fun! 

Enrich
Few other small private universities will give you the enrichment opportunities you will find at Methodist University. There are over 80 majors, minors, and concentrations—a number comparable to much larger institutions. These programs allow you to diversify academically and further prepare you for life in the “real world.”

Built into every Methodist University degree is a belief that students should be challenged, supported, and advised by a faculty that place an emphasis on teaching excellence. Involvement outside of the classroom is also part of what makes Methodist University a special place. You will enhance your academic experience by being a member of a community that encourages involvement and gives you a real opportunity for leadership development. Community engagement activities, internships and experiential learning exercises, undergraduate research opportunities, and global experiences will round out your Methodist University journey.

Empower
While a strong liberal arts core is the backbone of every Methodist University degree program, career preparation is equally important. MU graduates are highly sought after by graduate schools and employers alike. And they are successful: Methodist University graduates are leaders in virtually every field—they are educators, musicians, business owners, doctors, golf professionals, ministers, lawyers, community leaders, and almost anything else you can imagine.

Methodist University empowers you to do more by offering such a broad range of academic, extracurricular, and career opportunities. Start your MU journey. Complete the information request card at the front of this magazine, or visit methodist.edu to receive more information today!

“Methodist University has not stopped evolving since my freshman year. Every semester brings new opportunities and campus growth. During my time here, I’ve felt empowered to grow as both a scholar and individual, and I’ve learned how to overcome obstacles.”

“While at Methodist, I completed an internship every summer. I interned at Hidden Creek Club in New Jersey and The Broadmoor in Colorado, and I spent five months working at Cape Cod National in Massachusetts. All three internships were absolutely amazing experiences, and they offered the hands-on application that no class could possibly replace.”

“MU helped prepare me for pharmacy school in so many ways. The small classes and my professors’ open-door policies allowed me to have one-on-one learning experiences. I was able to grasp concepts at a much higher level. Outside of the classroom, I was very involved on campus. Now that I’m in pharmacy school, I’ve been able to apply so much of my experience from MU, and I truly believe this has put me a step ahead of others.”
