School Details

Founded on a common Christian conviction, Messiah is a multi-faith institution rooted in the transformation of students to follow the likeness of Jesus. Established over a century ago in Pennsylvania, as a missionary training center and Bible home, the school soon became a Bible college of higher education. At the mid-century point, Messiah became a recognized college. Now, the institution has most recently become Messiah University, holding true to its founding, but providing more student opportunities than ever. 

Messiah University offers comprehensive undergraduate and graduate programs in the liberal arts and applied sciences. Most of the school’s graduate programs are offered online, with a broad range of master’s programs, graduate certificates and post-master’s certificates available. There are several bachelor degrees available online, as well.

Across all disciplines, you’ll find faculty that not only teach, but serve as mentors and advisors, as you grow your knowledge and Christian faith. You’ll enhance your career and understanding of service. At Messiah University, there is a sense of renewal  in transformation by bringing together seemingly disparate students and ideas, perhaps best illustrated by these integrations:

  • Humility-Aspiration
  • Wisdom-Expertise
  • Worship-Service
  • Harmony-Difference
  • Faith-Intellect
  • Discipline-Imagination
