CN Description

Originally a Baptist seminary, Carson College became one of the South’s first coed postsecondary schools when it merged with Newman College. While the school is still committed to educating future ministers, it places equal emphasis on the liberal arts, as echoed by the motto “Higher Education for a Higher Purpose.”

Carson-Newman’s academics include over 50 programs of study. Particularly unique is the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, which offers degrees in Child and Family Studies, Retailing, Interior Design and more. The college’s graduate school currently has programs in Education, Theology, Counseling, Nursing, and Business.

Of course, CNC has plenty of Christian programs of study as well. In addition the MA in Applied Theology, there are undergraduate majors in Philosophy/Religion and Biblical Studies, as well as a General Religion major with several possible sub-concentrations.

CNC’s Office of Financial Assistance can help you find ways to fund your education. Several institutional scholarships are available to eligible students, as are Title IV programs like Pell grants and Stafford loans. Each year, over 500 students participate in Carson-Newman’s student employment program. This program provides financial aid in exchange for part-time work at one of many campus jobs.

I like the overall campus atmosphere. Everyone is friendly, polite and helpful. Being a part of a Private Baptist University, you do not have to deal with a lot of the drama that is involved with Public Universities, however it is not all completely lost. I would not trade my experience thus far at Carson Newman for anything and I am definitely glad I made the decision to attend this University. One thing I would advise prospective students about is that you have to want to be here. Like anywhere else, you will not be happy unless Carson Newman is the place you want to be. Do not try to force yourself to stay here because it is the easiest thing for you.
