Hello and thank you for expressing interest in North Greenville University and the College of Wellness & Sport Professions.
Since 1997, North Greenville has educated students in the fields of Sport, Recreation, Outdoor Pursuits, and more recently Physical Education. Our college is comprised of the Department of Outdoor Leadership which offers the highly experiential Outdoor Leadership degree; The Department of Physical Education and the state-approved Physical Education Teacher Education (K-12) degree; and the Department of Sport Management, which is one of only 32 COSMA accredited programs in the nation, with concentrations in Business, Coaching and Ministry.
Since 2000, we have graduated nearly 500 students in our fields of study placing over 87% in the respective industries and are poised to continue preparing and placing the next generation of leaders. Our programs are comprised of a wonderful and rigid combination of theoretical study, practical application, and experiential learning. Combining the study of our disciplines with real-world working experiences fully prepares students for the professional workforce.
Our college is committed to offering Christ-centered programs developing transformational leaders for the marketplace and society. We possess a vision for marketplace discipleship and biblical capitalism wherein an education not only equips students for a variety of professions, but more importantly forms their Christian Worldview to become leaders for the next generation.
Our staff of evangelical scholars, gifted teachers, and amazingly-experienced industry professionals are some of the finest instructors in the country. As I peer across the landscape of our college, I see faculty walking in a manner worthy of their calling while investing their God-given talent to the benefit of the Master and our students.
Thank you again for expressing your interest in NGU and the College of Wellness and Sport Professions. We hope that you will review our educational options and seriously consider joining us for a truly life changing experience.
