Mission of the University

The mission of Cumberland University is to provide a contemporary liberal arts education to students seeking a highquality, personalized college experience, which will allow them to not only have a successful and productive career, but to thrive intellectually, professionally, personally, and spiritually for a lifetime. Our core curriculum will require students to undertake programs of study in the cultural arts, humanities, social sciences, mathematics and natural sciences. In addition, our elective curricula will afford students the opportunity to pursue majors in these liberal arts areas as well as in one of several modern professional programs.
