Johnson University has helped students explore their passions and pursue their calling since 1893. The University's three-fold approach blends Arts & Sciences and Bible & Theology with Professional Study areas, preparing students for meaningful impact on the world in the name of Christ.

Today the Johnson University System holds accreditation by SACSCOC and programmatic accreditation by ABHE and offers more than 70 associatebachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D. programs across three campuses – in East Tennessee, Central Florida, and online – as well as localized ExtendEd sites across the country. 

As a leading Christian university, Johnson partners with other organizations in creative ways to help educate, prepare and inspire individuals who desire to serve Christ and others. Foundational to Johnson University is the principle of affordable tuition for every student. This is made possible in part through the financial support of donors who embrace the mission of the university and the importance of affordable programs from an accredited institution to train Christians for leadership roles in business, nonprofit, and ministry settings.

Explore your passions. Prepare for impact. Johnson University.
