Engage. Enrich. Empower.

Engage. At Methodist University you will take advantage of small classes, averaging less than 20 students, which enable classroom participation. Professors teach and encourage you to learn in an active setting. Outside of 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. 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.

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

    • Alisyn Keating ’21
      Applied Forensic Science with a minor in Biology, Wright Scholar | Mooresville, North Carolina
  • “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.”
