Gordon’s location offers a perfect vista to experience the beauty and rich learning environment of coastal New England. Our proximity to Boston—the global hub of higher education—connects you to a worldwide network of innovation and opportunity. Here, your classrooms extend well beyond their physical walls, encompassing a wealth of academic resources, culture and history.
At Gordon faith and knowledge are complementary, not contradictory. We stretch the mind through a challenging education that is both broad and deep, one that offers the freedom to ask and explore tough questions, while rooted in a committed Christian framework that informs all we do—from music composition to researching integrated pest management in our on-campus greenhouse.
Our commitment to faith provides a framework for the transformative pursuit of truth. We deepen the faith by integrating Christian belief and practice into all aspects of our educational experience, both on campus and globally. This is a vibrant community of believers, one where faith transforms us collectively and as individuals.
International studies and missions opportunities offer students a global context for the ideas and passions they develop on campus. Many study abroad options—from Italy to the Balkans to China—are covered by financial aid, so you can focus on where you’ll go, not how to make it work. Gordon’s programs span the globe and emphasize service over self.
With over 50 student-led councils and clubs, students have the space and resources to bring their individual inspirations to reality. Artists and scientists regularly showcase their work and research, and the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership provides funding and mentorship to help students transform great ideas into new and noble ventures. It’s about instigating lasting impact.
Our athletic program includes rigorous competition on the Division III level, and also collaborates with our academic and extracurricular programs to help students flesh out a holistic educational experience. Gordon student-athletes are distinguished by integrity, winning effort and Christian conduct in competition—looking to Christ as the model for learning, leadership and teamwork.
At the heart of Gordon is our commitment to fusing a top-flight liberal arts education with an informed Christian faith, while providing space for students to explore their unique callings. Gordon offers a total of more than 90 majors, minors, concentrations, pre-professional and interdisciplinary programs—and over 200 combinations of Honors, Scholars, Fellows and Leadership programs—to meet the individual goals of our students. www.gordon.edu/programs
