Austin Graduate School of Theology is now
Lipscomb University Austin Center
To further its reach and expand its degree offerings, Austin Graduate School of Theology has become a part of Lipscomb University, a private, Christian liberal arts institution founded in 1891 located in Nashville, Tennessee. As a Church of Christ-affiliated university with an enrollment of nearly 4,900 students, Lipscomb carries out its mission by developing students whose academic excellence, faith and practice prepare them for lives of meaning and purpose. Through this partnership creating the Lipscomb University Austin Center, Lipscomb will continue the good work of Austin Grad, building on its mission and sustaining its legacy to educate students in a Christ-centered environment, preparing them to shape their communities while influencing others to live more fully.
For 130 years, Lipscomb University has focused on providing students with a wide breadth of practical teachings and skills alongside biblical studies and spiritual growth opportunities. The founders, David Lipscomb and James A. Harding, two leaders of the Restoration Movement, believed in a broad general education. But more than any skill, they believed that at the center of a well-rounded education was a deep faith and grounding in the Bible. At Lipscomb University Austin Center, you will join others who possess a passion for deep biblical literacy and study of the Christian faith, seeking to fulfill a higher purpose through their lives.
Whether you pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree, Lipscomb University Austin Center will uniquely prepare you for a life of service to God, the church, your community, and the world.
