Founded in 1955 after several years of strife, Evangel University (the Assemblies of God university of arts, sciences and professions) is located in Springfield, Maryland. The school’s philosophy is “Christ is Lord” and it is integrated into every detail of the institution. From academics to student activities, students are taught to help other people and integrate their Christian faith into their lives and their professions. The university offers more than one hundred areas of study via their undergraduate, graduate and professional programs and students may choose to pursue their educations in the traditional classroom method or choose from a variety of courses and programs offered online.

This University offers an impressive athletics club as well. There are intercollegiate, club and intramural sports so that students have a variety of competitive venues to choose from. In addition to athletics, there are numerous social and religious clubs available to students and campus housing is provided as well. Students may also choose to participate with the campus TV and radio stations, yearbook or newspaper.


Evangel is an accredited Assemblies of God university that offers approximately 50 undergraduate programs and many more programs via their graduate and professional studies programs. They also offer nearly seventy minors to undergraduates.

Undergraduate Degrees

There are ten undergraduate academic departments that students may choose from. Some of these include behavioral science, music, business, communication, social sciences and theology. Some of the more traditional degrees and minors offered via these departments include subjects such as psychology, economics, broadcasting, early childhood education, art and biology. They also offer several degrees or minors in topics that may not be found at every university, including biopsychology, music, anthropology, Greek theology and pre-seminary.

Master’s Degrees

Several different master’s degree programs are offered as well. They are available from five different departments including Psychology, Education, Organizational Leadership, Music and School Counseling. The typical graduate program operates on a 15-week semester, and classes are in the evening so that busy professionals may work toward earning a degree while still maintaining jobs outside of school. Most degrees are attainable in two years but students may take up to five years if necessary. In addition, they offer an accelerated master’s program in conjunction with Missouri State University in the areas of business, science and math.

Professional Studies Program for Working Adults

The Professional Studies Program offers four bachelor’s degrees including Professional Communication, Human Services, Management and Civic Affairs (taught online). These programs are tailored for adults with at least four years of work experience that are working full-time but still want to earn a degree.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Undergraduate Admissions

Undergraduate admission requires several documents in addition to the application and fee. Applicants will also need to submit official high school transcripts, ACT or SAT scores, as well as a pastoral reference and an academic reference. After acceptance, students will also need to pay the enrollment deposit and have completed the 3 steps of the health registration process. These include taking the online TB screening test, completing the health screening form and submitting shot records that show Tetanus and MMR vaccinations were complete. Several of these forms can be submitted online, but a few must be downloaded and either mailed or faxed.

Graduate Admissions

Students wishing to gain admission to one of the graduate programs must complete several different steps. Each application is carefully and individually considered, so applicants should complete each document with care. In addition to the application and fee, applicants will need to submit one reference from a pastor or church official, one personal reference, one professional reference, a statement of purpose, standardized test scores as appropriate to the graduate program and official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work completed. Several programs have additional requirements so candidates should work closely with the program of choice to ensure that all documentation is submitted.

Regardless of the program applied for, transfer students and international students have additional application requirements and should contact the school to determine exactly what is required in order to be considered for admission. There are also different requirements for adults wishing to participate in the Adult Degree Completion Program.

Financial Aid

Evangel University offers financial aid directly from their institution in the form of private, need-based and merit-based scholarships. In addition, several outside venues offer scholarships and grants to the students. Federal grants, loans and work-study programs are also available. Students that wish to be considered for financial aid will need to begin the process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is available beginning in January of each year.

Students should complete this application and request that it be sent in as early as possible in order to be considered for all available forms of aid. Many scholarships have limited availability and are administered on a first-come, first-served basis. When completing the FAFSA, financial information for both the student and their family will be required, so students should have this information available prior to completing the form.
