CRISWELL COLLEGE is a Christian liberal arts college and divinity school in Dallas with a mission to provide ministerial and professional higher education for men and women preparing to serve as Christian leaders throughout society.

Founded in 1970 as a night school with two certificate programs and classes in theology and the Old and New Testaments, Criswell grew by 1977 to offer bachelor’s and master’s programs, and since 1985 it has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Throughout Criswell’s evolution, the school has maintained an uncompromising commitment to the inerrancy of Scripture, expository preaching, the study of biblical languages, personal evangelism, international missions, and hands-on practical ministry training. Every Criswell graduate has some training in all of these areas, equipping them to influence the culture for Christ in whichever field they pursue.

Today Criswell offers degrees including Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, And Master of Divinity. Undergraduate majors include biblical studies, Christian ministry, psychology, philosophy, politics and economics, and education. Master’s programs include Christian leadership, Christian studies, counseling, and theological and biblical studies.

Criswell’s undergraduate and graduate students enjoy a close-knit community as well as a great location in Dallas that enables living out the community characteristics of the gospel. Two nearby off-campus apartment complexes provide a residential setting for students, and the college will break ground in 2019 for its first-ever on-campus residence hall.
