    School Overview

    Simpson University, California’s only Christian university north of Sacramento, has been educating and shaping world-influencers for nearly 100 years. Simpson University was founded in 1921 as Simpson Bible Institute by W.W. Newberry, who served as its first president. Established in Seattle, Washington, the school was named in honor of Albert Benjamin Simpson (1843-1919), a Presbyterian minister who pioneered the Bible institute movement during the late nineteenth century and founded the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Initially offering a two-year program of study, the school was designed to promote spiritual growth and prepare students for Christian life and service, especially overseas. In 1955, the school moved to San Francisco, and then to Redding, California, in 1989.

    Fully accredited, Simpson offers liberal arts and professional studies degrees, an adult degree-completion program, graduate studies, and credential programs, resulting in associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees and certificates, several of which can be earned online.
