Overview

The University

Corban is an independent Christian university in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Their motto, "Dedicating Heart and Mind to God," is their focus as they pursue their mission to educate students who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. The university is nationally recognized for exceptional academic programs, community service, and value.

Academic Programs

Corban's 50 majors and program options will stimulate students' academic and spiritual growth. Professors become mentors. Classmates become lifelong friends. Students will be prepared for graduate school and equipped for success with employers who actively seek out Corban graduates. Internships, study abroad programs, and church and community service opportunities further connect students' faith to their education and future career.

Character

Each major is combined with a solid core of Bible courses that allows students to grow both spiritually and academically while developing a Christian worldview in every area of their life. The school is dedicated to helping all students achieve their highest potential through the pursuit of academic excellence in a Christ-centered atmosphere.

Student Life

The residence halls are a welcoming home away from home where students can create memories that last a lifetime and get involved in various campus activi¬ties like the Barn Party, Film Festival or worship nights. Students put their faith in action by serving on mission trips or in local ministries. Students can also play a multitude of intramural sports. The university's central location is just an hour from the ocean, two hours from the mountains and 45 minutes from Portland. Hiking, snowboarding and camping are almost at the doorstep.
