Located on 75-acres just outside of downtown Nashville, Belmont College opened in 1890 in order to provide educational opportunities for young women. The College merged with Ward Seminary in 1913, evolving into the Ward-Belmont School for Women. Another turning point for the institution came in 1951, when the school transitioned to the co-educational Belmont College. By 1991, the school adopted its university status and growth continues. Today, the private, not-for-profit Belmont University supports a liberal arts education, based on Christian principles.
Students can pursue undergraduate and graduate programs, including master’s and doctoral programs. Belmont University also supports adult degree programs offering non-traditional students the opportunity to complete undergraduate degrees. A number of graduate programs target the needs of working professionals, offering classes in the evenings or online, in addition to summer programs.
