School Notes:

  • Bethel's academic program stands at the junction of three great educational traditions: that of the liberal arts, of the church, and of career preparation. At Bethel, General Education provides a broad understanding of the social and natural world through the perspective of the liberal arts and sciences, and develops foundational capacities in basic academic skills.
  • Bethel College offers 17 majors and 2 concentrations; 5 certificate programs.
  • Residence life is an important part of the Bethel College experience. Two-thirds of the students live on campus. The college is small enough that you can know everyone by name. You will experience a sense of community here and will develop close-knit relationships that last a lifetime. Bethel has three residence facilities, located within easy walking distance of each other.
  • Bethel College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges. The Kansas State Board of Education, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, the Kansas State Board of Nursing, Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, and the Council for Social Work also accredit specific academic disciplines.
