Lincoln Christian University provides a high-quality education to undergraduate and graduate students.
Lincoln Christian Seminary offers rigorous Biblical and theological study to those with both practical ministry and academic interests. Of those students who enrolled in the Seminary for the first time in Fall 2013, 79 percent were still here for Fall 2014. Furthermore, over the past five years, on average, 263 students have enrolled each fall, and during that same time period, on average, 62 students have graduated. Of Seminary graduates, 76 percent report that they are employed, enrolled in further higher education or not seeking employment, and 82 percent report that if they were to do it over again, they would still choose Lincoln Christian Seminary. Additionally, Seminary graduates report that their education improved their ability to think theologically (4.5), interpret scripture (4.3/5), grew their enthusiasm for learning (4.4/5), faith in God (4.2/5), and focus and self-discipline (4.2/5). We believe that much of our success can be attributed to the accessibility of our faculty (4.2/5) and the quality of their teaching (4.4/5).
