Choosing a college is hard.
Choosing Gordon doesn't have to be.


Like the sand and sea, faith and learning are better together. At Gordon, faith is the framework through which we ask the hard questions, dialogue over our differences, and grow to be thoughtful leaders and contributors in the world.

Lifelong returns
93% of alumni are employed or in grad school within one year

A challenging education within a framework of faith offers you the freedom to curiously and courageously wrestle with tough questions, entertain new ideas, seek truth and take action.
Often, this happens in the company of invested peers or under the wing of a trusted faculty mentor. Gordon professors are catalysts for transformation, investing not only in your academic or professional success but also in your personal future.

 The contagious spirit of collaboration, creativity and innovation at Gordon extends to our New England location. You’ll reap the benefits of a big city without the price tag of a downtown school. This rich learning environment—the hub of healthcare, biotechnology, finance and education—affords you access to a robust network of opportunities.

Tackle challenging, relevant questions and innovate new approaches.

At Gordon, community is built everywhere—in the newly updated Bennett Athletic Center where 25 percent of the student body participates in Athletics to the black box theatre, home to one of the “Top 20 Best College Theatres” in America according to The Princeton Review. These organic relationships couple with intentional programming (like biweekly Chapel, DEEP FAITH Week, Day of Prayer and Spiritual Life Groups) to foster spiritual growth.

Your calling isn’t a one-way street to a single destination. That’s where the Career and Connection Institute comes in, helping you discover your passions, develop your gifts and direct your future. 

Afterward, you’ll join the ranks of Gordon grads who go on to lead churches and companies, make policies and moves, fight illnesses and injustice. They land jobs at Apple, Harvard Medical School and World Vision. They earn degrees at Boston University, the University of Edinburgh, Pennsylvania State University, Harvard and Yale. 

Wherever God calls them, Gordon alumni are valued for their character and integrity.

Build the skills and experience to boldly go where God is calling you.

Discover why leading (and living) well begins with serving generously.
