Students who pursue this program are able to choose one of two paths with which to do so: a Humanities or an Interdisciplinary concentration. The Humanities option allows students to devote some additional attention to subjects in the humanities and social sciences, while the Interdisciplinary option allows students to select courses from a range of disciplines. This liberal arts program is committed to producing graduates with a commitment to critical thinking effective communication, and life-long learning. As Andrews is a Christian institution, the coursework is presented through a firmly Christian perspective that emphasizes ethical practice. 

In order to complete this program, students must earn a minimum of 124 hours of credit, 45 of which come from the student's chosen concentration. Additionally, at least 30 hours must come from courses at or above the 300 level and 60 from approved courses taken at Andrews.

    School Overview

    From the very start, back in 1874, Andrews University has placed serious scholarship, quality research and a strong focus on practical Christianity first on the list of things they think are important about attendance at a Christian university. Mr. Goodloe Bell, a teacher, started a tiny school with only 12 students in Battle Creek, Michigan. This was the birth of what is now known as Andrews University, later named after John Nevins Andrews (1829–1883), the biggest thinker in the 19th-century Seventh-day Adventist Church. Today, Andrews is the best-known Adventist educational institution in the world.

    Andrews boasts about 130 academic options to choose from, quality professors who care about your success, and lots of resources to keep students on track. They provide hands-on learning experiences, opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom, and personal attention from faculty as a result of our small class-size and low student-faculty ratio.

    The School of Distance Education extends access to Adventist education beyond campus, community and national boundaries. We support our faculty and students around the world by promoting best practices in distance education and international partnerships, and by creating a virtual community designed to nurture learning. The School of Distance Education serves Andrews University by providing leadership, faculty and student support, and professional resources in the following areas: educational technology, distance education, compliance and off-campus programs.
