    School Overview

    In the early 1840s, a number of Baptist leaders in East Tennessee desired to offer better prepared ministers to area congregations. The East Tennessee Baptist Educational Society, which was comprised of two groups with a common interest, applied in 1850 for a charter to establish an institution of higher learning. Afforded the use of a local church building, Mossy Creek Missionary Baptist Seminary opened to students in the fall of 1851. The Tennessee Legislature granted the school’s charter in December of that year. The 1889 merger of men’s and women’s institutions made Carson-Newman University an early entrant in coeducation in the region. Their stated mission "as Christian educators is to help our students reach their full potential as educated citizens and worldwide servant-leaders."

    Carson-Newman University awards associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees on campus and online.
