Discover academic programs that will empower you to Learn, Liberate, and Lead!

Since our founding as the nation's first degree-granting historically black college or university (HBCU), Lincoln University has evolved into a premier liberal arts institution. As part of our diverse student population, you will take on courses that will challenge you to be your best and give you the skills and confidence you need to build a successful career.

We offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs, staffed with passionate professors at the top of their fields. And unlike some other schools, you'll be learning from those professors themselves. We offer a 15:1 student to faculty ratio, small classes, and a culture of support from our university president down to every staff member so you'll be able to achieve more than you thought possible.

If you're looking for a more specialized experience, we offer an Honors Program, numerous international programs, and our Upward Bound pre-college program for first-generation, low-income high school students. 

Your learning won't just be limited to the classroom, either. Internships with major national corporations, cutting-edge research opportunities, study abroad programs, experiential learning, and much more: it's all open to you to enhance your learning and prepare you to be a leader in your community and beyond.

It all adds up to an exceptional and transformative college experience: it's no wonder that we're ranked a "Best College" by Money magazine, and U.S. News and World Report has named us a Top 20 HBCU and in the Top 50 Socially Mobile Schools (to name just a few of our accolades).
