Located in the vibrant city of Anderson, in the rapidly growing
region of Upstate South Carolina, Anderson University is a
selective, comprehensive Christian liberal arts university offering
bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees on campus, online and on
at the University Center in Greenville. Students may choose from 59
major degree programs, 38 concentrations, 46 minors, 18 master's and
doctoral degrees and 8 certification programs.
Anderson University is among the fastest growing private
universities in the country, according to the U.S. Department of
Education and the Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac. Increased
enrollment only tells part of the story, however; the reason for it
is Anderson's reputation as a premier institution of higher learning
and status among the best regional universities in the South as
recognized by both U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton
Review. Further, U.S. News & World Report for 2020 named Anderson as
one of the “Best Value” schools among regional universities in the
south, and the Wall Street Journal named Anderson #27 for best
student engagement among all universities in the United States.
At the heart of our educational program is an uncompromising
commitment to the liberal arts as a means of preparing students with
both a breadth and depth of knowledge they need not only to be
successful in the career of their choice, but to be successful in
all realms of life—in family, community, work, and church.
