Lipscomb University is a Christian community of scholars, dedicated to excellence in learning, leading, and serving where students prepare for success today, tomorrow, and forever. Located in Nashville, Lipscomb draws on the city as its campus and the world as its classroom. The College of Professional Studies breaks down the barriers post-traditional (adult) students face when pursuing an academically rigorous degree. Our students are experienced and highly motivated, and often balance academics with a family and a full time job. Since each of these student’s needs and circumstances are so different, we find out where students are, and then provide flexible, personalized pathways, and individual targeted support.
