Christ commanded us to love God with both heart and mind, and formal study is one way to do this. Academic rigor and spiritual vitality are the hallmarks of Criswell College coursework. Our professors are experts in their fields and often become mentors and lifelong friends to students.
You can earn an associate degree, choose from five majors at the bachelor level, and five programs at the graduate level. No matter which program you choose you will be challenged and changed by what you learn and experience.
You will gain a deep love of learning at Criswell College, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in whatever field you choose to serve Christ. Criswell students are constantly improving their ability to see all of life – church, government, media, business, education, etc. – from a biblical, Christian perspective.
“You will be forever changed as a result of your academic experience at Criswell.” – Joseph Wooddell, Professor of Philosophy
At Criswell, humility suffocates pride, knowledge replaces ignorance, and passion becomes focused and effective. We believe that the God of the universe is the God of every discipline, from biblical studies and ministry to psychology and economics. For that reason, we push our students to love God with their mind, and we train them under scholars who know their discipline and revere Christ and His Word.
