What matters to you is what matters to us. Why you do what you do is the motivation that inspires you to press on and reach your goals. It’s what fuels you to overcome challenges and fight for success. It empowers you to make the difference you always knew you could.
So, why do we do what we do?
We’re an institution of higher education committed to Training Champions for Christ — so our why is you. Our purpose is to champion you as you pursue the means to go further in your field, become a leader in your industry, or start a new career. Your education will equip you to reach new professional heights and shape a better world by championing what matters to you. And that’s what matters to us.
Why does experience matter? Online education programs have been growing in popularity over the past few years, but we've been here since the mid-1980s. At Liberty, you'll benefit from over 30 years of learning, growing, adapting, and innovating for the distance learner — and more than a decade of researching the needs of the online student.
You can be confident that we've taken the time to learn what's important to you. And what is that?
These student needs challenged us to find new financial solutions, get ahead of industry trends, and blaze trails into cutting-edge career fields — and it’s paid off. We’re now ranked in the top 1% of online schools and universities for affordability, accessibility, and academic quality by BestColleges.com. That’s the difference experience makes.
At Liberty University, you’ll receive a world-class education that combines academically challenging curriculum with the versatility of online learning. And Liberty’s solid Christian foundation means that every class will be grounded in both ethics and excellence, so you’ll have opportunities to grow spiritually as you grow professionally.
You’ll also be a full-fledged member of our Liberty University community — which means you’re connected to our brick-and-mortar campus in Lynchburg, Virginia, and can cheer on FBS-level Flames football or any of our other 20 NCAA Division 1 sports throughout the year. Plus you can stream Convocation, our platform where we host a variety of world-renowned leaders in business, government, entertainment, athletics, and faith to address the student body three times per week. Past speakers include Steve Forbes, Dr. Ben Carson, Steph Curry, Jim Caviezel, and Ravi Zacharias.
Liberty University is proud to announce its top 5 ranking for 2018. Liberty's online programs are ranked in the top 1% of more than 2,100 online colleges and universities for academic quality, affordability, and accessibility.
