The Christ College Experience

Whatever their majors or career paths, Christ College students share the pleasure of intense engagement with thought and a commitment to understanding what they can accomplish in the world.


The Christ College curriculum is carefully structured to develop independent critical thinking and to encourage a sense of vocation and service. Christ College courses, which fulfill many of Valparaiso University’s general education requirements, are conducted as small, seminar-style classes that teach students to engage in serious dialogue about challenging topics.

A lasting sense of community among Christ College students, faculty, and staff is fostered by intense discussion in the classroom, supportive and approachable professors, social events that provide frequent opportunities to meet in an informal context, and opportunities to learn through service. Lifelong relationships and friendships form through the many traditions of Christ College.
