From Azusa Pacific University

At Azusa Pacific University, you’ll find a transformational education experience and a community of scholars who are passionate about being a light to the world. Whether you’re studying kinesiology, business, theater, or chemistry, you’ll be equipped to pursue excellence —and Christ—in all you do.

At APU, learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom. Opportunities for involvement abound whether you’re on or off campus. Each one not only helps you prepare for what you’re going to do after you graduate, but also supports you in what you can do now: research with faculty, serve in a leadership role, study abroad, volunteer in the community, go on a mission trip, play intramural sports, join a club, learn skills at an internship, or work on campus.
