Description

Muskingum University, a small Presbyterian university in New Concord, Ohio, offers personalized liberal arts-based academics that nurture the whole person.

The first undergraduate year at Muskingum is grounded firmly in liberal arts studies, after which students go on to pursue their major. Majors include such fields as Pre-Law, Religion, Engineering, Nursing, a variety of interdisciplinary programs and the spectrum of arts and sciences-based subjects.

A small collection of graduate degrees are also offered, primarily in teacher-education. For adult students, Muskingum offers such programs through evening and weekend courses for convenience. Dedicated to nurturing the whole student, Muskingum classes don’t only impart intellectual ideas.

They also help students to examine their subjects from a spiritual and ethical perspective, a style of learning enhanced by the small, personalized classroom atmosphere.

Detailed Ratings

I have visited Muskingum University on several occasions, both with friends who were students, and for events being held on campus like graduation ceremonies and music performances. The housing, grounds, and buildings are nice, and well maintained. Their is a lot of diversity among both students and staff, and this is a university with a strong focus on both artistic and intellectual pursuits. New Concord is a small college town with a strong reputation for safety and the Muskingum Campus seems to reflect this. I felt safe walking on campus even after dark. I have heard excellent things, from students and staff, about Muskingums sports teams and extracurricular activities.
