Who We Are
Trevecca Nazarene University is a comprehensive institution of higher education located in Nashville, Tennessee. The University offers associate, baccalaureate, master’s, and education specialist degrees. In addition, the School of Education and the Graduate Counseling Program each offer a doctoral degree.
Trevecca’s distinctiveness is that of being a holiness institution of higher education that presents a Christian interpretation of truth. While the nature of the University has changed some over the years, its mission to provide quality Christian-centered education, with an emphasis on the integration of faith and learning, has been maintained. The name “university” is especially appropriate for any institution that clearly focuses on this mission.
There are several elements that are key to Trevecca’s character:
First, teaching is the University’s primary responsibility. While some faculty are increasingly engaged in research, writing, and service projects, their greatest task is to teach.
Second, the main concern is in helping the individual student. Trevecca is a Christian community.
Third, spiritual life development remains at the core of its focus. The spiritual commitment of the faculty and student body is a vital part of University life.
We welcome you and encourage you to be a part of Trevecca Nazarene University.
