Cultivating Difference Makers Since 1899
Six women and men with a vision to teach and train missionaries for Christian service prayed this school into existence in 1899. Now, more than 120 years later, Azusa Pacific University is still here. We have more programs, more activities, and more buildings, but the mission hasn’t changed: Azusa Pacific exists to prepare difference makers to impact the world for Christ.
Experience the APU difference: We can’t always capture it in words, but a lot of people say “there’s just something about APU.” Discover the unique Christlike community Azusa Pacific has to offer at apu.edu/visit.
Choosing a school dedicated to Christian higher education means you’re looking for a holistic educational experience—one that’s about more than just a major or career preparation. Whether you study Music, Chemistry, or Business at APU, every program is infused with an exploration of faith in the field. Each class offers opportunities to deepen your understanding of God’s truth, preparing you to make a difference in the world around you.

Outside the classroom
At Azusa Pacific University, opportunities to dig into your faith and pursue God’s calling on your life abound both inside and outside the classroom. Hear from speakers in chapel, go on a mission trip abroad, volunteer in the local community, serve in a leadership role, and much more. Wherever your interests lie, APU has a place for you.
