Known for advancing the integration of Christian faith and vocational learning, Geneva makes a promise to each student regarding the opportunities they have during their studies and the preparation they will receive for courageous engagement in the world throughout their life’s work.

This promise assures students they will be able to make a deep connection to the vibrant academic community at Geneva. The experience of living and learning in this environment will grow their faith because they will be taught by faculty members who are active in Christian churches and integrate the truth of God’s word into their courses. Geneva students’ faith is also nurtured in the more than 200 activities each year and in the College’s 19 NCAA Division III varsity sports and intramural athletics programs. In turn, students will be taught and inspired to follow their callings vocationally and in their personal character. This institutional dedication to equipping students for high levels of professional performance and personal integrity can positively impact their careers, families, and communities for a lifetime.

Geneva offers over 145 traditional undergraduate majors and programs, seven fully online adult undergraduate programs, and five in-demand graduate degrees.

The engineering program is ABET-accredited and focuses on equipping students with a broad knowledge of engineering while providing intense study of engineering concentrations: biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, interdisciplinary, and mechanical. Geneva engineering and other programs hold to objective standards in ethics and help students understand the relevance of honesty, reliability, and courage to their lives.

Geneva engineering graduate Ben McAuley ’11 is team lead in software engineering at Garmin International in Kansas. He develops the software platform for the company’s marine products segment that includes everything from handheld fish finders to navigation systems for luxury yachts. Along with experiencing career success, Ben demonstrates the impact of the faith integration he learned at Geneva when applying his principles to the leadership of his team. He says, “Caring for employees doesn’t just mean ensuring they are doing their best work; it’s also helping them discuss work-life balance as a new dad or navigating the stressors of COVID and working from home while making sure they have the time they need to take care of themselves.”

By striving to realize high expectations and receiving even higher levels of support, Geneva graduates are prepared for impactful careers and for a life of service to God and neighbor; 93 percent of Geneva students are working or in graduate school six months after graduation.

Governed by the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, a Geneva education is grounded in the truth of God’s Word in every aspect of student life. Every one of its experienced and accomplished professors is a committed Christian who challenges students with rigorous scholarship built on the foundation of Christian values. Faculty, leaders, and staff aim to provide a transformational experience that fully develops students’ abilities and challenges them to be all that God created them to be. The low student-to-faculty ratio means more personal attention and guidance in all areas of life. Geneva professors take an active role in mentoring students under their charge with both an academic and personal scope. It is common to see students and professors sharing meals in the cafeteria, talking with each other on campus or attending chapel or church services together.

Geneva is listed as a top regional university, a #6 best value school, and has one of the top undergraduate engineering programs in the nation, according to the 2022 U.S. News & World Report rankings. Geneva earned a No. 1 ranking in its division with designations as a 2022–2023 Military Friendly School and Military Friendly Spouse School.

The College is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is a founding member of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) and the International Association for Christian Education (IACE).
