Our curriculum is designed to educate and challenge students in their area(s) of study as well as inspire them to learn and lead in the world with purpose. As a liberal arts college, Midland University offers a variety of majors and pre-professional programs. Majors such as nursing or youth and family ministry can prepare individuals for a specific vocation while other majors such as business administration or biology can offer a variety of career options. Finally, the numerous pre-professional programs offered at Midland can prepare students for graduate studies.
Our academic program is divided into three areas that are designed so one-third of the graduation requirements fall into each of these three areas. There is flexibility, however, so personal needs can be met. The three areas are as follows:
Institutional Core and Distribution Requirements
Institutional core and distribution requirements include: foreign language competency; mathematics, speech and writing proficiencies; Western heritage; and nine distribution areas — aesthetic sensitivity, American heritage, Christianity, contemporary issues, moral responsibility, personal well-being, scientific literacy, societal structures, and world community.
Each student must successfully complete a major field of study. This is the area in which students must meet the specific requirements for their major. For more details, visit the majors and programs page.
Electives complement and supplement the institutional requirements and major course work. Electives offer several options: greater specialization in a major, course work in fields related to a major, the addition of a second major or minor, or the exploration of a variety of courses.
