It makes a difference where you end up.

Nashville is a flourishing, diversified city that delivers the world to your door. Lipscomb is a close-knit Christian community that magnifies your potential to create meaningful change. Together, the two collide to create a transformational space for you to see and be seen, know and be known, and experience extraordinary opportunities.

Centralized in the thriving Green Hills neighborhood and just a few short miles from downtown, we consider Nashville an extension of our campus. In a leading city for the health care, music, entertainment, technology and finance industries, you’ll gain insight you won’t find anywhere else. Your unique learning experiences in Nashville will result in an interdisciplinary network with plenty of open doors after graduation.

Nashville isn't only a great place to learn. It's also a wonderful city to live in — and one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S.

Known as Music City because of its vibrant music scene and historic venues such as Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry, Nashville was recently named one of the top 15 best places to live in America by U.S. News & World Report. In fact, our city is home to four professional sports teams, world-class museums, parks, miles of greenways, trails and a plethora of unique dining options. You'll be at the heart of it all — always at the center of something new and exciting.

Nashville isn’t only a great location to be a student—it’s also the perfect place to be a local.
