Moravian University offers students a private education they will not find anywhere else: personal attention and preparation for life with a record of success longer than our nation’s history.
With small class sizes and expansive academics, Moravian University is both selective and accessible, rooted in an education-for-all inclusiveness that we pioneered. Moravian has constantly evolved over 280 years and now carries university recognition, reflecting the richness of our undergraduate, graduate, and research offerings.
Open to students of every background and faith, we celebrate our historic roots in the Moravian Church and continue our founders' legacy of crossing borders and overcoming barriers. Set in charming Bethlehem and the picturesque Lehigh Valley of eastern Pennsylvania, Moravian is the place for those expecting remarkably dedicated faculty, the latest technology, the warmest of spirits, and the power to truly transform your life.
Moravian University’s distinctiveness begins with its extraordinary commitment to students. The faculty know you, the alumni help you, the advisors guide you. The dedication is authentic and everywhere, starting before students even show up to campus and lasting long after they graduate. We have designed our university to ensure it, with one faculty member for every 11 students. Yet it is also in our identity. We take your education personally.
For a small school, the Moravian experience has a broad reach. Undergraduates can choose from more than 70 areas of study–and have the freedom to design their own majors. The graduate program provides more than 45 doctorate and master’s degrees and certification options. And the Moravian Theological Seminary offers graduate programs for the ministry and spiritual direction.
So many other touches set us apart, too. In addition to earning the distinction of being an Apple Distinguished School, Moravian University gives every incoming undergraduate student a MacBook Pro, an iPad, and an Apple Pencil. It’s part of our determination to ensure every student has tools to succeed, regardless of their background. Moravian was also the first college to launch an honor society for first-generation students, creating a model for other colleges and universities across America.
