Online Studies

While we love our campus in the heart of Nashville, we know not everyone can attend classes in person because of competing priorities and responsibilities.

That won’t stop us from providing you with the same quality education you would have with us face-to-face. At Lipscomb, we believe a top-ranking, rigorous and holistic education should be accessible to everyone who desires it, and we are committed to providing that access. 

Our online studies will prepare you to be a confident, compassionate, global-minded leader engaged in work that transforms communities around the world. Our courses will grow you academically, professionally and spiritually, no matter where you are physically. Work with cutting-edge research and learn from faculty who are leaders in their field. Take part in a cohort of individuals with similar goals and aspirations as you, but with varying backgrounds and experiences that will broaden your perspective. Dive into courses that discuss faith as a foundational part of your vocation, and ethics and integrity as vital to any successful endeavor.

You don’t have to sacrifice any part of your life or work in order to receive a quality, future-focused education from Lipscomb — and we won’t sacrifice any part of the Lipscomb experience we bring to you.
