International Students

There's not enough space to welcome you in every language spoken on our campus, so we'll just say, we're glad you're interested in Lipscomb!

You might be surprised to learn that Lipscomb University has many international students, representing more than 40 countries from around the world. It's something that we're proud of and a true indication of the diversity we welcome here in both nationality and spirituality.

Lipscomb is not the largest college out there and, to be honest, we like it that way. We are consistently ranked as one of the best universities in a number of categories:

  • One of only four universities top-rated for teacher preparation, National Council for Teacher Quality, 2013
  • Best Regional Universities in the South, U.S. News and World Report, 2014
  • Safest Colleges in Tennessee, CollegeProwler, 2013    
  • Green Colleges, The Princeton Review, 2013
  • Best Technology in the Classroom, CollegeProwler, 2013

Here you'll discover a strong Christian environment that values faith-informed learning and spiritual growth. You'll have the opportunity to choose from more than 78 majors (principal subject of study) in 145 areas of study. That means, more than likely, you'll be able to find almost any path that interests you. You'll find professors who care about who you are as much as what you learn, and perhaps you'll have the most fun getting to know your fellow students from all over the world!

And finally, Nashville! Nashville is an exciting city with lots to do: shopping, great sports, recreation and entertainment when you want to have fun. Plus, there are many opportunities here for internships, volunteering and career advancement.

We're excited that you’re considering Lipscomb, and we hope you'll want to be part of our Herd.
