About the Degree
Starting freshman year, students receive instruction directly from their professors, instead of just meeting a list of assignments and deadlines on their own. Olivet professors have a long track record of research, practical experience and mentoring students. Students may choose a concentration from various options.

Olivet was formative for my professional life and transformative for my spiritual life. The school prepared me excellently for a life of ministry leadership and resilient faith. I have had the opportunity to lead church, non-profit, and academic ministry with the strong foundation given to me by the professors and administration at Olivet.
