Located in Redding, in scenic Northern California, Simpson University is the state's only private, residential campus north of Sacramento. Students enjoy a beautiful campus within sight of three mountain ranges.
Simpson is a Christian university of liberal arts and professional studies in the historic evangelical tradition. Students discover their God-given strengths, develop their relationship with God, pursue knowledge and put their faith into action.
Simpson averages 16 students to every professor; 68% of undergraduate classes have 20 students or less. A small class size - a freshman class of roughly 175 students - makes the Simpson experience more personal than the typical four-year university. Relationships formed with professors and students last a lifetime.
Simpson offers many choices of professional studies leading to the ministry, business, education, music, and other career fields. The University continues to embrace its long-standing motto - "Gateway to World Service." A mix of commercial and natural resources within close proximity enhance student life and strengthen a student's sense of community and well-being.
Simpson University, California’s only Christian university north of Sacramento, has been educating and shaping world-influencers for nearly 100 years. Fully accredited, Simpson offers 24 liberal arts and professional studies degrees, an adult bachelor degree-completion program, graduate studies, and credential programs, serving more than 1,000 students a year.
Simpson University is a Christ-centered learning community committed to developing each student in mind, faith and character for a lifetime of meaningful work and service in a constantly changing world.
