Reach Your Full Potential

Academics


Challenge your mind. Expand your horizons.

At Lenoir-Rhyne University, you'll receive an education like no other. We offer exceptional academic programs to meet the evolving needs of our students.

Our classes sizes are small, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 13:1. That way you get the support you need from faculty members who are passionate about the subjects they teach.

We also recognize that learning goes beyond the classroom. That's why we offer opportunities for students to participate in research and scholarship, internships, community service, student organizations and study abroad.

Your Options are Endless


Whether you are undecided or know what major interests you, we've got options to set you on the right path.

Lenoir-Rhyne offers 50+ undergraduate majors and 20+ graduate and doctoral programs for you to choose from, in addition to the seminary programs.

We want to see you succeed. That's why we have advising and academic support services to help you manage your coursework and experiences beyond the classroom.
