Academic Divisions

Reinventing the liberal arts experience one student at a time. 

Pfeiffer University is committed to inspiring a generation of graduates who are natural leaders, confident in who they are and driven to pursue purposeful careers. To fulfill that mission, Pfeiffer has reinvented the liberal arts experience. We deliver current academic knowledge coupled with practical, professional experience.

Undergraduate students are nurtured and inspired on our historic Misenheimer campus. Graduate, professional certificate and degree completion students find our online and professional programs at our Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham campuses to be flexible and practical.

Each of our academic divisions is tailored to provide the education and experiences required for career success.
