Academics: Education with a Christian Worldview

Our mission at Ohio Christian University is to prepare students to serve effectively in the church and society by providing a holistic, Christ-centered, biblically integrated education in the Wesleyan tradition. Our undergraduate and adult curriculum integrates faith and learning in a scholarly environment that fosters critical and creative thinking, academic excellence, and professional competence.

Our emphasis on ministry and missions extends beyond the classroom into real-world experiences that prepare students for a lifetime of service in ministry. OCU faculty members are not only leaders in their fields, but have dedicated their lives to Christ and the pursuit of a Biblical worldview. Their commitment to students provides an excellent academic environment for the acquisition of both knowledge and wisdom.
