College Profile: Moravian College
Moravian truly believes in educating the whole person. It is rooted in our philosophy, which derives from the teachings of the 17th-century Moravian leader John Amos Comenius, known as "the father of modern education." He believed that education should do more than just teach information, but also give students the chance to explore values, build physical well being, and develop a caring and productive way of life.
We know that a lot of learning takes place outside of the formal classroom--in the residence halls, in the field house, in organization meetings. So in all of our student life programs, we want to foster that learning and assist students in positive ways, in ways that will help them grow.
The purpose of a Moravian education is to set you free —from gaps in your knowledge, from limitations in your thinking, from isolation in your world—to lead a fulfilling, successful life. Our educational programs are founded on the ideals of John Amos Comenius, a Moravian leader born in the 16th century, now revered as the "father of modern education."
Our nation's leaders are crying out for a reaffirmation of his principles: a strong basic curriculum, personal attention from skilled teachers, a global perspective, and a vision for the future of students. Moravian College was founded more than 250 years ago on Comenius's principles. We continue to fine-tune his ideals to fulfill the needs of a new age and a new world order. We like to think that we have a special insight into what he had in mind.
For over two centuries men and women exploring God's call have chosen to attend Moravian Theological Seminary, a graduate school that prepares them for vocations that make a difference in the lives of others. Known for combining strong academics with practical experiences, Moravian equips our graduates with a strong pastoral identity, ready to lead and serve in congregational, counseling, and other ministries.
To add to the richness of the learning experience, it is common for our student body to represent at least 14 denominations and other faith traditions. Our programs are rooted in the Moravian faith tradition — centered in Jesus Christ, grounded in Scripture, ecumenical in spirit, committed to community, and focused on missional leadership.
Moravian Seminary is located in Bethlehem, an attractive tree-lined city of 75,000 in the center of the Lehigh Valley community, with a population of more than 600,000. Six nationally-ranked colleges are located in the Lehigh Valley — Moravian College, Lehigh University, Muhlenberg College, Lafayette College, Cedar Crest College, and DeSales University.
