Earn a highly esteemed degree in a Christ-centered community that's committed to your success. At Trevecca, you’ll reach your education goals while also deepening your faith and worldview. Our body of non-denominational faculty and staff allow for students to understand other's perspectives while also growing themselves.

Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, we’ve worked hard to develop degree programs to help you reach the career you’ve dreamed of. Our graduates enter their fields knowledgeable, skilled and prepared. Local and national employers recognize our graduates for their expertise, work ethic and integrity.

We believe that faith should be at the center of all things. That’s why, as a university, we come together multiple times a week to worship, learn, praise and grow in chapel. This time allows our students, staff and faculty to come together in fellowship to deepen their relationship with Christ and each other. Our students are also encouraged to serve—whether that be through one of our annual service projects, various student-led ministries or within chapel.

The athletic teams at Trevecca strive for success both on the field and off the field. Since becoming a member of NCAA Division II in 2014, our teams have won championships in baseball, softball, volleyball, men’s and women’s golf and women’s soccer in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC). Our 13 athletic programs combine hard work, dedication and passion on the field with service and academic excellence in the community and classroom. 

Here at Trevecca, we combine our quest for higher education with our faith and our desire for community to create a place where students can grow, not only in their desired fields, but also in their faith and relationships.
