Why recruit at Biola?

Many reasons! Biola University, founded in 1908, offers 40 undergraduate majors and 145 professional fields of study, as well as master, doctor, and professional degrees in 6 schools: School of Arts & Sciences, School of Education, Crowell School of Business, Rosemead School of Psychology, Cook School of Intercultural Studies, and Talbot School of Theology. All are regionally and professionally accredited. Biola is also known for its selective Torrey Honors Institute which is a great books program patterned after Oxford’s tutorial system, employing reading, discussion, writing, mentoring, and lectures. All undergraduate students graduate with a minor in theological and Biblical studies supporting Biola’s mission of “biblically centered education, scholarship, and service — equipping men and women in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ.” In its 2014 college rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked Biola in its “Best National Universities” category. Biola was one of only two national universities in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) to be included in the first tier. In 2013 Biola was also listed as one of America’s 19 “up and coming” national universities by U.S. News.
