Top Christian Colleges and Universities
Best Christian Colleges and Universities in America
To my knowledge there are on formal rankings of just Christian colleges and universities. Criteria to consider when choosing a Christian university:
• Overall academic ranking of the university in nationally recognized publications
• Specific department ranking and quality of professors teaching and studying in your major
• Christian and spiritual life on Campus
• Preferred location or geography
• Financial aid and your budgetary needs
• Extra-curricular programs offered
• Where you feel led to live and learn
