Missiology at Southern Nazarene University 

SNU’s Missions major is the second largest at SNU. We offer more undergraduate missions courses than any other Nazarene school. This allows you to enjoy a wide range of missiological subjects and issues. You can also receive a substantial scholarship for hands-on supervised work in local churches and urban ministry centers. Our goal is to allow you to graduate as debt-free or near debt-free as possible to move into missionary careers without delay.
