Follow your passion. Discover your purpose.

Bethel’s a place where we challenge each other and support each other. Where we’re committed to spreading Christ’s love and serving the people around us. Where we work side-by-side with brilliant professors on projects that reach far beyond the classroom. Where we have a lot of fun and make friends and memories to last a lifetime.

College of Arts & Sciences

The College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) is Bethel’s undergraduate college for over 2,500 recent high school graduates and transfer students. We take a whole-person approach to education—encouraging each person to achieve academic goals, grow deeper in faith, and engage in a lively community, all with Christ at the center. Distinctives include more than 80 majors in inviting fields—such as the arts, humanities, business, natural sciences, and social sciences—small class sizes, and a robust study abroad program. Highly credentialed faculty members are dedicated to teaching, integration of faith and learning, and the translation of Christian belief into global service. The college consistently ranks among top Midwestern Universities in the “America’s Best Colleges” issue of U.S. News & World Report, and is listed in “Top Colleges for Top Students” in Peterson’s Competitive Colleges.
