At Multnomah University, we seek to equip more than just educated graduates—we seek to equip a generation of bold Christ-followers; men and women who hear His calling and respond. In our Science programs, we believe faith and the sciences work together for profound discoveries as students dig into God’s world and God’s Word. You will learn the in-depth knowledge you need to prepare for entry into professional schools or to excel in the workforce.

Josh Gulliford ‘19
Physical Therapy Student, Southwest Baptist University

Josh knew from an early age he wanted to help people by practicing Physical Therapy like his father. But that’s only part of his story. Balancing his career aspirations, sports, personal life, and school took a lot of time management and support from his community, but being at a school where Josh could live out all parts of his story is what made Multnomah special.
Along the way, Josh learned from his professors and classmates who helped him grow as a student and a follower of God. Josh shared, “I grew up my entire life in a Christian household but never really dove deep into my faith, and I think Multnomah provided that opportunity and that safe space to do so.”
Living 20 minutes from his hometown also allowed Josh to make connections in the Physical Therapy world and get the observation hours he needed. When the time came to apply for PT School, Josh was admitted to Southwest Baptist University in Missouri. And today, Josh still integrates his education from Multnomah in his clinical rotations.

Why Study at Multnomah?

Founded in 1936 as Multnomah School of the Bible, we believe your education should be grounded in Scripture. We seek to draw closer to God’s Word in every aspect of your experience — in classes, athletics, and especially your time in community with friends and professors.

Among our faculty are world-renowned biblical scholars, business experts, master science communicators, and more. However, it’s their commitment and care for their students that make them stand above the rest. With opportunities for faculty mentorship, your professors will be there for you at every step of your educational experience.

Portland is a beautiful and vibrant city in the Pacific Northwest. With oceans to the west, mountains to the east, and world-class food just blocks away, you’ll have easy access to anything you want to explore. Service also lies at the heart of Multnomah, and living in Portland brings opportunities to engage with the community through university events like Day of Outreach.

With an undergraduate population just under 400 students, you get to truly know your classmates, and we like it that way. Our close-knit community creates opportunities for discipleship, lifelong friendship, and developing connections that will facilitate your career and personal development for the rest of your life.

Sometimes you need more than great professors, caffeine, and friends to get you through college. That’s where our campus resources come in to play. Multnomah is equipped with a student counseling and wellness center that provides Christ-centered, culturally responsive, psychologically sound therapy. Additionally, we provide a student success center, career services, and disability resources.
