John Brown University's mission is to provide Christ-centered education that prepares people to honor God and serve others by developing their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives. That mission extends to our graduate programs, which were designed to educate the whole person — “head, heart, hand.” Our goal is to produce graduates who not only lead in their professions, but also make the world a better place.

With a 40% increase in enrollment over the past two years, we’re one of the nation’s fastest-growing graduate schools. Our international and experiential learning opportunities will broaden your mind and expand your knowledge of the world and your career. And our commitment to teaching means that every professor you have in the Graduate School at JBU will be focused on one goal: making your educational journey the best experience possible.


JBU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (, 312-263-0456) and the Graduate School is a member of the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools. In addition, the School Counseling and Education programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP, formerly NCATE) and the business programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
