Emphasizing Academic Excellence

Since 1949, Grand Canyon University has encouraged students to find their purpose in Christ, with an emphasis on applying Christian values to their studies and in the real world. GCU’s mission is to prepare students to become global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators and responsible leaders by providing an academically-challenging, values-based curriculum from the context of their Christian heritage. Regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, GCU students can be confident in both their campus and online degrees after graduation.

"I have been attending GCU online for about 6 months now and I love it. It is the best experience ever. The faculty and staff are the best. They go beyond what you expect to make this an enjoyable and educational venture."    - Earl Shelton, Ken Blanchard College of Business

Earning an online degree from Grand Canyon University allows students the flexibility of distance education in a way that best fits their busy lifestyles. For those seeking a more traditional educational experience, degree programs are also offered on the Phoenix campus in the evening.

Earning a degree from GCU’s College of Education provides the knowledge and in-demand skills needed for today’s most diverse and challenging classrooms. The Ken Blanchard College of Business offers programs that incorporate proven leadership and values-based management concepts.

The College of Arts and Sciences offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs in liberal arts as well as health sciences. With programs that include Justice Studies, Public Health, Athletic Training, Medical Imaging, Health Care Administration, Counseling, and Psychology, students can choose a degree program that best coordinates with their goals.

For more than 25 years, GCU’s College of Nursing has offered an environment that provides extensive hands-on training, nursing simulations and a human dissection and anatomy program for students wishing to pursue a bachelor degree in nursing.

Seasoned leaders, managers or business owners hoping to attain even greater success should they pursue a Ken Blanchard Executive MBA degree. This innovative program has been designed to combine Ken Blanchard’s research on values-based leadership with a challenging executive-level graduate business education. And for students looking to add “Ph.D.” after their name, the College of Doctoral Studies conveniently offers programs online with two face-to-face residencies. Grand Canyon University provides a quality online learning system that allows students to study at the times that work best for their demanding and diverse schedules.

Finally, GCU also offers several undergraduate and graduate Christian studies degrees through the College of Theology. These programs prepare students to lead as Christians in their areas of interest, no matter if they’re secular, religious, professional or personal. But GCU is more than just a classroom. Students will make new friends who can become lifelong brothers and sisters in Christ. They may also participate in serving their fellow students and the surrounding community.

"What an incredible experience! I just finished my academic portion of my Masters in ED in Elementary Education. What I have learned at GCU and in my practicums amazes me. GCU is an enabler for your future. What a great ride for knowledge and discovery! On to Student teaching in 2 months!" - Donn Gallon, College of Education
