One of our most popular programs is our School of Nursing program. Through this program, earn your bachelor's degree while getting hands-on experience in a new nursing simulation lab. Our School of Nursing is ranked No. 7 in the nation ("Top RN Degree Programs for 2017," by Accredited Schools Online) and the only university in northern Indiana to offer degrees for ADN, BSN, BSN-Completion and MSN all in one place.

For the creative musicians with an interest in Worship Arts, our program will have you harmonizing with new friends on campus and writing unique songs in our studio. Current students have recorded their music in Nashville, Tenn., while working with industry-respected producers.

Another benefit to studying at Bethel is our proximity to employers – and fun things to do! Beyond the classroom, there are internship opportunities with nearly 15,000 area businesses. Our Career Services office can help you find positions. With Bethel’s location in St. Joseph County  – just a couple of hours from Chicago and about 20 minutes from Elkhart County businesses – your options for jobs after graduation are abundant. Learn more about our urban community, here.

We also offer cultural opportunities in our  study abroad and task force teams. You might take a trip to Spain and pursue your interest in Literature and Language or be part of a Task Force Team and work in an impoverished community. Senior Maria Vidal had a great experience on a recent task force trip to France, “Taking a class outside of the classroom allows you to practice what you’re learning immediately.”

Part of a university experience is making new friends. When you come to campus, you’ll find people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Our students come from 35 states and other countries – about 90 current students are from abroad. Learn more about life on campus.

Inspired to apply? Don't forget about scholarship opportunities, aid and grants. Bethel’s Financial Aid Office can help you find ways to make your undergraduate education affordable. Contact us and let us help you.

A degree can be just a piece of paper. Make it the experience you've been dreaming of.
