Inventive Learning


We believe God created you for a purpose. No matter what field of study or profession you want to pursue, our caring and passionate professors will mentor and train you to impact the world for Christ. Southern Wesleyan University is perfectly designed to seek new Christ centered educational avenues that will involve experiential learning at all levels for all programs, while innovating new platforms of delivery and connecting with dedicated partners to enrich content and insure state-of-the-art relevance. This is what we mean by inventive learning, and it is evidenced in collaborative partnerships with the community, businesses and area hospitals as well as stimulating experiential labs like the newly completed Criminal Justice House.

The college experience is all about learning and growing, so why limit that to sitting at a desk or in a lecture hall? At Southern Wesleyan University, we think you can do better. Each program incorporates real-world experiences, such as competitive internships for business majors, student teaching for education majors, forensic lab training for criminal justice majors, and real client video projects for media communication majors.
