Overview

A Private Liberal Arts University Set in Redlands, California

Set amidst the beauty and excitement of Southern California, the University of Redlands offers its students degrees in the liberal arts, business, education and other specialized fields. It is a private school with a beautiful campus in the city of Redlands, California, and it is comprised of three distinct undergraduate colleges: College of Arts and Sciences, the Johnson Center for Integrative Studies, and the School of Music. Students enjoy a diverse liberal arts education, exciting social life, and access to some of the most beautiful natural settings in the United States.

Redlands, California is set amidst a backdrop of the tallest mountains in the region. Here students get the best of many worlds, as they have a short drive to the beach, the mountains, and desert. Students are close to natural wonders like Big Bear and Joshua Tree National Park, and the many cultural activities and attractions of the nearby cities of Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Students can hike the mountains, surf waves, and visit astonishing art galleries, making student life one of the most exciting aspects of attending school in Redlands, California.

Integrated Studies Integral to the Liberal Arts Education

The University of Redlands emphasizes integrated studies and diversification among its core curriculum, to give students a well-rounded liberal arts education. The school focuses on producing analytical and enlightened graduates through integrated studies and innovative teaching techniques. Its goal is to teach students how to question stereotypes, challenge assumptions, and to understand the world as a whole.

Redlands students also enjoy a low student to teacher ratio and personal assistance and direction from faculty advisors. Students can readily engage in class discussions, request individual help, and have direct face-time with their professors. This personalized attention and focus on integrated studies results in superior performance in the classroom and after graduation.

The curriculum at the University of Redlands includes integrated studies and liberal arts major programs offered through their three undergraduate schools: College of Arts and Sciences, the Johnson Center for Integrative Studies and the School of Music.

The College of Arts and Sciences offers undergraduate degrees in the liberal arts and sciences in fields such as: Accounting, Physical Science, Computer Science, Economics, Environmental Science, English, Foreign Languages, Government, Managerial Studies, International Relations, Pre-Law, Religious Studies, Social Sciences, Studio Art, Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and more.

The Johnston Center for Integrative Studies provides a nontraditional approach for a select group of highly motivated students. Johnston Center students are exempt from most of the academic structure of Redlands and instead negotiate their entire course of study with a faculty and peer committee. Drawing from the Redlands curriculum as well as from courses created each semester by the Johnston community, each student proposes an individually designed general studies program and an area of concentration. Course performance is evaluated in a narrative format rather than with letter grades. These students live in the Johnston Center Complex, a living and learning community that includes student rooms, faculty offices, classrooms, and space for weekly community meetings.

The School of Music offers the profession degree of Bachelor of Music in Composition, Education and Performance.

The two professional schools at the University of Redlands accept traditional undergraduates as well as working professional adults. The School of Education offers degrees such as: Doctorate in Educational Leadership, Master of Arts in Education, Professional Development, Service Credential, Teacher Credential, and Undergraduate Program for Teacher Preparation.

The School of Business offers degrees such as Bachelor of Science in Business, Bachelor of Arts in Management, Master of Arts in Management, Master of Business Administration (MBA), and Master of Science in Information Technology.
