Southern Adventist University is a co-education institution established by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, offering doctoral, master's, baccalaureate, and associate degrees, and one-year certificates. Southern’s faculty inspires students each day through their expert research in a variety of fields: DNA testing on ancient plants, computer chip innovations, and the life and writings of C.S. Lewis, just to name a few. The professors are more than simply teachers; they’re mentors and spiritual leaders as well. Call them smart. Call them cutting-edge. And before long, you’ll likely grow to call them friends.
