About Moravian University

Founded in 1742, Moravian University offers students a private education they will not find anywhere else: personal attention and preparation for life with a record of success longer than our nation’s history.

With small class sizes and expansive academics, Moravian University is both selective and accessible, rooted in an education-for-all inclusiveness that we pioneered. The first school to open its doors to women, Moravian has constantly evolved over 280 years and now carries university recognition, reflecting the richness of our undergraduate, graduate, and research offerings.

Open to students of every background and faith, we celebrate our historic roots in the Moravian Church and continue our founders' legacy of crossing borders and overcoming barriers. Set in charming Bethlehem and the picturesque Lehigh Valley of eastern Pennsylvania, Moravian is the place for those expecting remarkably dedicated faculty, the latest technology, the warmest of spirits, and the power to truly transform your life.
