At Washington Adventist University, education is faith-based and student-focused. The university offers more than 32 majors and academic programs, including associate, bachelor, and graduate degrees.

You come to college to learn-- so, naturally, the learning resources on or near campus are extremely important. At Washington Adventist University, the term "Learning Resources" encompasses a great deal more than is typical at most universities. We consider Washington, D.C., where more than 190 countries are represented, a living and learning laboratory. It is the center for government, professional, and business organizations as well as the world headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Students on campus

At Washington Adventist University, education is about far more than imparting knowledge-- it’s about mentoring, nurturing, encouraging, and supporting students in their journey of faith. It reaches far beyond worship services, but into the classroom, residence halls, student organizations, and mission opportunities that allow students to put faith into action. Students take spiritual life seriously and participate on campus and throughout the region in spiritually focused activities.

At Washington Adventist University there are several world class programs which make the university unique. The Honors Program provides academically gifted and talented students the opportunity to engage and explore subject material in depth and with more choices, inspiring them to excel as independent learners and investigators within a collaborative learning community.

Music performance is another program of excellence at Washington Adventist University. World class music  groups regularly perform at Carnegie Hall and numerous other venues nationally and internationally.

Washington Adventist University's sports program includes both intercollegiate and intramural sports for men and women.
