McPherson College has redefined the traditional liberal arts education by engaging students in a career-oriented curriculum that incorporates real-life experiences to supplement and complement classroom learning. Through internships, international travel and interdisciplinary studies, athletics and special interest groups, our students experience an educational setting unlike any other. Regardless of their academic majors, they are encouraged to explore to step outside their own experiences and their own cultures as they prepare for the ever-changing world in which they will live and work.
