University description (as per official university website)
McPherson College has redefined the traditional liberal arts education by engaging students in a career-oriented curriculum that incorporates real-life experiences to supplement and complement classroom learning. Through internships, international travel and interdisciplinary studies, athletics and special interest groups, our students experience an educational setting unlike any other. Regardless of their academic majors, they are encouraged to explore – to step outside their own experiences and their own cultures as they prepare for the ever-changing world in which they will live and work.
Approximately 480 Students from 33 states and 6 foreign countries are enrolled at McPherson College, providing a diverse and welcoming community.
Majors are offered in over 20 academic disciplines. Pre-professional study and the option to design an individualized or interdisciplinary major allow students to combine select courses throughout the curriculum to meet their specific personal and professional goals. Our four-year, career-oriented liberal arts approach also provides students with opportunities for internships and experience-based education.
Chartered in 1887 by leaders of the Church of the Brethren, McPherson College has a distinguished history of providing excellent liberal arts and career-oriented education shaped by the essential values of its founding denomination. The College welcomes students of all cultural, economic and religious backgrounds.
