Christian Life Profile

A Place to Belong

Belmont University is a Christian university located in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, in a quiet area close to downtown and adjacent to Music Row. We’re the largest Christian university in the state and among the fastest-growing in the nation, with nearly 9,050 students who come from every state and more than 33 countries. Those facts alone don’t do justice to the Christian spirit that’s present on campus, a spirit that’s portrayed by the many ways students gladly give of themselves through service projects and avid volunteerism.

A leader in academics
Belmont boasts a 14:1 student-faculty ratio and is committed to leading the way by pioneering exciting majors like Biophysics, Emerging Media, and Music Technology. Belmont’s College of Theology & Christian Ministry offers nine undergraduate paths of study ranging from Biblical Studies to Faith & Social Justice to Worship Leadership. Our facilities offer state-of-the-art technology, and students work directly with faculty on research, health care simulations, audio productions, filmmaking, and more. Abundant opportunities exist for internships, and students are encouraged to participate in study away programs in numerous locations in the US and abroad. 

A thriving community
Belmont’s beautiful 93-acre campus is brimming with possibilities to help you enjoy your new home away from home. The University offers over 160 student organizations, including club sports, Greek organizations, service-minded groups, faith development fellowships, and several niche honor societies. Sports fans have plenty to cheer for with 17 NCAA Division I teams to follow (go Bruins!). Plus, Nashville provides the perfect backdrop for an amazing college experience while setting the stage for limitless career potential.
