About Point University
Founded in 1937 as Atlanta Christian College, Point University is a private, four-year liberal arts institution preparing students to influence culture for Christ in all spheres of life – through business, church, government, arts and entertainment, education, media and family.
With an enrollment of more than 1,200 students, Point University offers degree programs in areas of study ranging from biblical studies to biology. The Access program offers associate and bachelor’s degrees for adult learners, as well as online courses. The university provides a broad, comprehensive curriculum designed to prepare students for their chosen professions. Just as importantly, the university equips students to take their faith into the marketplace in new and culturally relevant ways – to erase the lines between who they are and what they do so that they see life and mission as one and the same.
The university’s historic campus is located in East Point, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. In fall 2012, the traditional, residential campus will relocate to West Point, Ga., just an hour away near the Alabama border. The historic campus will continue to operate as a site for Access, the adult degree p...rogram. The university has a satellite location in Peachtree City, Ga., and plans to open another in Savannah, Ga., in early 2012.
Point University’s students are part of a growing, vibrant community of believers who support and encourage one another, representing a variety of Christian faith backgrounds. At Point, professors and students know each other by name – and build relationships that last a lifetime. Students are encouraged to serve others, whether through a mission trip across the globe or an urban service project. Students are also encouraged to get involved on campus, where activities include a variety of social, service, athletic and performing arts organizations. Point’s athletic teams are transitioning to intercollegiate competition at the NAIA level.
Point University graduates are working and serving in 43 states, three U.S. territories, more than 15 foreign countries, and with numerous campus ministries, Christian camps and churches. Whether called to full-time ministry or another career, Point University graduates are going into all the world to live and love and serve in a way that makes Jesus visible… that makes the Gospel visible… that makes the cross visible to a world in need.
Point University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award the associate and baccalaureate degrees.
