Faith permeates all aspects of the University. Missions and ministry are integrated into every facet of your Cedarville life. Inspiring daily chapels, our one-of-a-kind Bible minor, worldwide ministry opportunities, and a biblical perspective in the classroom all lead to a distinctly Christ-centered experience.
Since it was founded in 1887, Cedarville has stood as a citadel of academic excellence, with 111 areas of study and top rankings in national academic competitions. We have built our global reputation on strong studies, quality research, and a faculty that believes in mentoring and guiding its students.
Excellence is expected from everyone at Cedarville. As a member of the Cedarville community, you will receive the support and resources necessary to reach your highest potential of academic achievement. And you will discover that Cedarville has earned its reputation as one of the nation's best colleges.
We are committed to maintaining complex balances without compromising our doctrinal or philosophical distinctives. This means you will be trained to be "in the world, but not of it." You'll also find we are ambitious, but not elitist; conservative, but not old-fashioned; relevant, but not relativistic.
From student life to curriculum design, our goal is that you possess the expertise and character needed to engage your professional, social and political spheres-of-influence with truth from God's unchanging Word. And our students appreciate our efforts. In a recent national survey, they ranked us #1 among all participating colleges in several key areas.
Cedarville offers you numerous possibilities to be involved in ministry. Over 100 teams serve in local churches, schools, social agencies, inner-city outreaches and community programs. Our traveling drama, music and puppet teams minister to audiences across the nation. You can also participate in a discipleship group, or join a missions or study abroad trip to nearly anywhere in the world.
