Johnson University has helped students explore their passions and pursue their calling since 1893. Our three-fold educational approach blends arts and sciences as well as Bible and theology with professional study areas, preparing students for meaningful impact on the world in the name of Christ.

Professional study areas span eight schools, from business and education to congregational ministry. Our low student-faculty ratio (14:1) contributes to a more personalized college experience.
