Welcome to Antioch University

Congratulations on joining our community of innovators and activists determined to make a lasting and positive impact on the world.

Antioch University is a special institution. We celebrate and perpetuate our rich history of social justice work, our heritage of socially engaged learning, and our commitment to academic excellence. We educate to advance the common good and to improve humanity at home and around the world.

Antioch’s first president, well-known abolitionist and public education activist Horace Mann, understood that there can be no social justice without democracy-and that there can be no viable democracy without education. A well-educated populace is essential to a strong democracy. This insight is as important today as it has ever been, and we strive to play our part in supporting democracy.

We have accomplished so much in our 172 years and counting. Our students, alumni, and faculty are engaged in important and critical efforts in advancing democracy, promoting social, racial, economic, and environmental justice, and achieving victories for humanity. But there is still more work to be done.

As a university, we have a moral obligation to stand up for our values and to advocate for change. Our work must extend beyond our classrooms and into our communities through engaged scholarship, advocacy, and service. We are working toward becoming a genuinely antiracist university. We support peaceful protesters and demonstrators in the Black Lives Matter movement who have raised their collective voices against racial injustice, systemic racism, and white supremacy. We are engaging in honest self-assessment and are taking corrective action and affirmative steps toward becoming the antiracist and pro-inclusive institution we all want Antioch University to be.

Your time at Antioch will be filled with tremendous opportunities and new challenges. You will study with faculty who are renowned scholars and highly regarded as leaders in their fields. Through our in-person, online, hybrid, and low-residency programs, you will experience academic excellence and student-centered learning within a diverse community.

In this catalog, you will find answers to your questions regarding admissions, curriculum, university policies, and procedures. We offer an inspiring range of academic programs, including certificates, undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees. You will find information on degree requirements, courses, and the academic calendar. Included are resources to help you flourish, including library services, tutoring assistance, and support services. The catalog is a roadmap for your journey to acquire the skills and knowledge you need to be successful during your time at Antioch University and throughout your career.

Each of you has a different story that brought you here. These individual stories together create our community of active participants and creative thinkers who are challenging the status quo and working to advance social, racial, environmental, and economic justice.


Today, the world needs you more than ever.


We are glad you are here.
