Pursuing knowledge together.

Overview

At McPherson College, we believe in the energetic pursuit of knowledge. Through hands-on projects, exploring new ideas together, and program experiences that prepare you for a career, your academic team will spark your intellectual curiosity. ​

You’ll walk, talk, and eat alongside your professors, absorbing their knowledge and wrestling with ideas you’ve never considered. In fact, it’s common around here for faculty to invite students over for dinner and healthy debate. ​

With over 40 majors and pre-professional programs, McPherson College gives you the flexibility to explore many academic interests, take chances, ask questions, and be part of a campus that prizes curiosity and collaboration over competition.​
