Our courses are taught from a Christian perspective, keeping with our mission to develop leaders who will change the world. We also award millions of dollars in university-funded grants and scholarships each year.

Regent is a place where people care about you — where you discover how to live for Christ while you prepare for your future. You’ll find that a degree from Regent will change your life for good and the world for the better.
