At North Greenville University we believe that “all truth is God’s truth.” By which we mean that all truth ultimately comes from God, who is Truth.

Because we believe that all fields of knowledge ultimately cohere in Christ, the act of studying any discipline is a spiritual act.

As a comprehensive university rooted in the liberal arts tradition, we proudly offer 14 majors, 16 minors, plus interdisciplinary programs, so that students have multiple options for pursuing their life’s vocation (and perhaps even avocation) in a Christ-centered context and from a thoroughly Biblical worldview to become transformational leaders for Church and society. Our graduates pursue a wide variety of callings, including, but not limited to, the professions, the marketplace, the academy, nonprofit work, and full-time Christian ministry. Whatever calling a Christian pursues is also his or her ministry.

Students in the College of Humanities and Sciences study under some of the most committed and passionate teachers that exist in the modern American university. If students actually want to know their professors, North Greenville University is the place for them! Our faculty are dedicated Christians who bring to the classroom a wide range of professional and educational experiences, evangelical theological traditions, and a distinctly Christian worldview. We come from both Christian and secular education experiences, but each of us grapples daily with how to think Christianly about our disciplines and find great pleasure in mentoring students as they ask the same, or similar, questions. You will not find a more committed teaching faculty at any university.

We encourage you to prayerfully consider continuing your education at North Greenville. We enjoy communicating with prospective students and their parents. Please feel free to reach out and give us an opportunity to answer any questions you may have.

Blessings and Peace,

H. Paul Thompson, Jr., PhD
Dean, College of Humanities and Sciences
