Description

If you’re looking for instruction in the Bible as well as the liberal arts and sciences, then Baptist Mid-Continent University in Mayfield, Kentucky, is the place for you.

The university’s primary aim is to provide students with a high-quality, Christ-centric education to develop skills for service in a diverse society as well as Christian leadership by inspiring spirituality as much as intellect.

Academics at the university include bachelor’s and associate’s degrees in more than 11 programs, including arts & humanities, business, education, social sciences, and more. Unique to MCU is a BS in Christian Ministry.

In addition to traditional degree programs, Mid-Continent also offers a unique Advantage program to working adults who are looking to return to college.

Many Advantage programs take place off campus in a number of schools and businesses across Kentucky and southern Illinois for added convenience.

  • Class leadership service opportunities
  • Class representatives

  • And more

Financial aid is available to eligible students in the form of loans and grants.

I am enjoying my school experience. I am a 55 year old displaced worker who is starting over. The Advantage approach to education fits my lifestyle and needs perfectly. I am very greatful for Mid-Continent and the opportunities being provided for me.

It is a complete joke getting financial advisers to contact you back about your money, and when they do they get upset like it is their money.
