has been named as one of the best colleges for studying the Bible by TheBestSchools.org
. The website recently released its rankings of the top 15 colleges and universities from the United States based on their commitment to Biblical education. Cedarville is ranked seventh out of the colleges and universities considered.
A release from the site said, “Bible-intensive schools serve a vital role in faith and learning in America. Historically, such schools grew out of the spiritual void left when traditionally Christian colleges—like Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and William and Mary—left their Christian roots.”
One of the reasons Cedarville ranked so well in the survey was its commitment to its 16-hour Bible minor for all students. Other characteristics such campus life, quality of faculty and academic excellence factored in to the final rankings.
Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University attracts 3,400 undergraduate, graduate and online students to more than 100 areas of study. Inspiring greatness for over 125 years, Cedarville is a Christ-centered learning community recognized nationally for rigorous academic programs, strong graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings and leading student satisfaction ratings.
