Abilene Christian University is a diverse, welcoming, academically rigorous community redefining what it means to be a Christian university in the 21st century.
Founded in 1906, we’re a private, non-profit university affiliated with Churches of Christ and committed to transformative, energized learning. Supported by a faculty of Christian scholars, we prepare undergraduate and graduate students for service and leadership throughout the world.
Our faith-based education goes beyond academics. ACU’s residential campus offers students a safe place to grow intellectually and spiritually — and to learn to live independently. Division I athletics, intramural sports, 100+ student organizations, and countless service and worship opportunities contribute to our vibrant student life.
Students may choose from 77 baccalaureate majors that include more than 135 areas of study, 30 master’s degree programs, and three doctoral programs. As you develop professionally through coursework and real-world learning, you will also grow spiritually. You will leave ACU with the skills you need to succeed in your chosen profession.
ACU is in Abilene, Texas, an award-winning city of nearly 120,000 people 150 miles west of the Dallas and Fort Worth area. ACU Dallas, a branch campus in Addison, Texas, is the home of the university’s online graduate and professional degree programs.
One of the most significant ways in which a student develops at ACU is spiritual. Our vision for spiritual formation at ACU is built on connections by connecting with God, connecting in new spiritual communities, connecting in personal spiritual practices, connecting in ministry & service, and exploring Calling and Career.
