Hit it on the Sweet Spot

Our 1,200 students come from 35 states and 30 nations, so you’ll find students with similar interests as yourself, as well as those of different cultures and viewpoints. Eighty percent live on campus in one of 11 residence halls or student apartments, creating a true collegiate environment.

We hire respected Christian faculty who value good teaching, discovery, and experiential learning, so students learn from leading thinkers and professionals. Our faculty are among the best in their fields. More than 80 percent have earned the highest degree in their field. While their primary role is teaching and mentoring, many are also involved in on-going academic research, publishing articles and books, serving national organizations, and consulting for corporations and non-profits. They do not see themselves as professors who happen to teach at a Christian university, but rather as Christians who have the opportunity to serve Christ as scholars and educators.

Nationally recognized academics

At Milligan, a unique interdisciplinary Humanities Program lays a common foundation for learning, as students learn about the historical, philosophical, literary, and artistic basis of our modern society. Learning from a liberal arts perspective prepares students for an ever-changing world.
