Welcome to the Academic Affairs webpage at Southwestern Christian University. The Office of Academic Affairs serves the campus by guiding curriculum and activities toward uniting students’ vocational interests with their passion for pursuing God’s truth and positively impacting their world for Jesus Christ. We are committed to leading the university in its core areas of focus: scholarship, spirit, and service.
Southwestern Christian University is small by design to ensure we remain nimble and able to quickly respond to the changing needs of students and job market demands. Our average class size is only 12, g giving students more personal interaction with their faculty. With approximately 50 programs of study, our faculty strive to serve our students and prepare them for life-long learning. We are committed to infusing our Pentecostal heritage and relentless passion to pursue Christ with both our curricular and co-curricular programs to help students mature in their faith.
Our main campus is beautifully wooded and only minutes from downtown Oklahoma City, giving students access to vast activities yet maintaining a small town feel in the local Bethany area. Likewise, our Tulsa Metro campus offers a retreat like atmosphere while keeping students near a nucleus of activity.
Southwestern Christian University is committed to academic excellence, independent thought, and diverse perspectives while maintaining an unapologetic commitment to our founding denomination, the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. If you are looking for an intellectually stimulating environment that is steeped in Christian worldview, we welcome you to our campus and the SCU family.
