University of Redlands

The University of Redlands is a private, independent University centrally located to the beaches, mountains, and desert in the heart of southern California. Recognized for having one of the highest study abroad participation rates among our peers, Redlands students travel the world, choosing from more than 100 international programs. The University has produced 20 undergraduate Fulbright scholars in the past six years, making Redlands a top producer of Fulbright Scholars among institutions of its profile. The University of Redlands Community Service Learning program receives national acclaim as our students annually complete over 100,000 hours of public service around the world. Redlands offers more than 40 undergraduate programs as well as graduate programs in business, communicative disorders, education, geographic information systems, and music. The University blends liberal arts and professional programs, applied and theoretical study, traditional majors and self-designed contracts for graduation. For a select group of highly motivated, self-driven students, the progressive Johnston Center for Integrative Studies allows undergraduates to negotiate their own course of study with a faculty/peer committee, receiving narrative evaluations rather than letter grades. The Master of Science in Geographic Information Systems program is an intensive, one-year residential program that draws international acclaim, in part due to the close collaboration with Redlands-based Esri, the worlds leading GIS company. The School of Education offers teaching credential and graduate programs, including the Masters in Teaching and Learning, which combines a teaching credential and masters degree in 16 months; through this program, undergraduates can earn a bachelors degree, teaching credential, and masters degree in five years. The School of Business offers degree completion programs for working adults, as well as an MBA and Masters in Management.
