    School Overview

    Eastern University is a private, Christian, four-year institution of higher education located in St. Davids, Pennsylvania. The Christian university is affiliated to the American Baptist Churches. Founded in 1925 as a part of the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, the university broke away from the seminary in the 1950s to become its own separate entity known as Eastern Baptist College. In 1972 in an effort to welcome Christians of other denominations, the university dropped Baptist from its name to become Eastern College. In 2001, the university changed its name yet again to its current title.

    Eastern is a Christian university dedicated through teaching, scholarship, service, spiritual formation, student development and societal involvement to the preparation of undergraduate, graduate and Seminary students for thoughtful and productive lives of Christian faith and service. Eastern students discover how to pursue this mission in over fifty programs offered by our colleges and seminary, including Associate's, Bachelor's, Master’s and Doctoral degree programs. Many degrees at all levels are available in online or hybrid formats.
