Engage
At Methodist University, you will take advantage of small classes—averaging fewer than 20 students—which enable lively 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 play for) the 20 MU Monarch NCAA Division III athletic teams, and have fun!

Enrich
There are over 80 majors, minors, and concentrations—a number comparable to much larger institutions. These programs allow you to diversify your academics and further prepare for life in the “real world.” Built into every Methodist University degree is a belief that students should be challenged, supported, and advised by faculty who place an emphasis on teaching excellence.

Empower
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 a broad range of academic, extracurricular, and career opportunities.

I am investing in my education and my future, and Methodist is investing in me by giving me countless opportunities for growth, networking, and community engagement.”

“Not only did I learn valuable information within a classroom setting, but I was also able to apply that information to real-life experiences through internships and jobs that I have worked in the ‘real world.’ Through my involvement on the men’s lacrosse team and in other organizations on campus, I have made friends and memories that will last a lifetime.”

“The Engineering program provides information on what goes on in a real-world job setting such as workstation layouts, running a factory to maximum efficiency, and product design. My experience at Methodist has helped me become more independent and accountable, and acquiring these practical skills will help me be a better problem solver when I am employed.”
