The mission of the B.A. in History is to educate students in the areas of American, European, and world/non-Western history so that the students will be prepared to:

  • 1) pursue graduate or professional studies
  • 2) enter the teaching field
  • 3) enter a career in the public or private sector
  • 4) enter a career appropriate to a broad-based liberal arts education (not necessarily within history)

Student services

The Counseling Center is a service provided by Anderson University for its students. The purpose of the Center is to provide a confidential, trusting, and caring environment where clients can work on the issues that brought them to counseling. The client-counselor relationship is unique in that the focus is always on the client's needs. While the Center's staff are professional and respect the values of all clients, the worldview of the Counseling Center staff is Christian.

Housing services

Anderson University is home to 21 different on-campus residence halls that feature a wide variety of campus-living options, ranging from traditional halls to apartment-style suites. Each residence hall is designed to foster a sense of community and well-being, as well as several good options for studying. Nearly half of the residence halls have been constructed in the past six years and feature the most modern living arrangements available. Each residence hall is staffed by a student Resident Advisor on each floor as well as a full-time adult live-in professional in each living area. 

Library services

In a world where Googling is a verb and millions of bits of knowledge – useful and otherwise – can be researched from the palm of one’s hand, it might seem the traditional library’s purpose has run its course. But in the 21st century, libraries are more than simply a storehouse for information. They are dynamic hubs of research activity and group projects.

ICT services

Anderson University recognizes the importance of technology in the area of academics. The University continually strives to advance the availability and use of technology in classrooms, as well as in the residence halls.

Medical services

Welcome to the Thrive Wellness Center. At Thrive, you will find the health center and counseling services in one place. Beginning fall of 2017, Anderson University will provide medical services on campus for the first time!

That means you can get treatment and prescriptions for most minor ailments at Thrive without leaving the campus.
