  • Bible-based institution for professional and theological studies.
  • Award-winning academic programs.
  • Prepares students for Christian service in all careers.

SOUTHWESTERN ASSEMBLIES OF GOD UNIVERSITY (SAGU) is a Christian institution that remains committed to excellent Bible-based education. More than 70 academic programs are offered through SAGU’s colleges of Bible and church ministries, business and education, and music and communication arts. Programs added in the last 10 years include health sciences, criminal justice, social work, digital media arts, and math education. Small class sizes and a student-faculty ratio of 21:1 create a personal, comfortable learning environment.

SAGU is strong both academically and biblically. The education department demonstrates a 100 percent state-certification passing rate. Digital media arts students have produced four award-winning films that received national airtime. Another student film project sent student journalists to dozens of countries to produce a feature-length documentary. And SAGU is one of only 139 schools in the world to reach All-Steinway School status.

SAGU offers men's and women's basketball, soccer, and cross county as well as football, baseball, softball, volleyball, and cheerleading. Waxahachie’s historic downtown district is full of shops and restaurants, and many students travel the short distance to Dallas for sport and art events. In a recent survey, 92 percent of students expressed a “great sense of connection and community at SAGU,” and 94 percent of graduating seniors said that they would "recommend the university to prospective students."
