Capital University

Capital University is a private four-year undergraduate institution and graduate school located in the capital city of Columbus, Ohio. At Capital, we transform lives through higher education, and our purpose is purpose. Through an immersive, high-impact and convergent approach to teaching and learning, we find, feed and refine the role each of us was born for — no matter who we are. With roots that ground us firmly in a history of academic excellence, free inquiry and individual development of every student, Capital combines personal attention with a balanced liberal arts and professional studies education. Since its founding by the Lutheran Church in 1830 and charter as a university in 1850, Capital has been an agent in shaping engaged citizens and purposeful leaders who improve their industries, communities and society. Our roots secure us as we stretch toward innovation, new ways of knowing, and better ways of contributing. Our values ground us, as we remove obstacles to give each student, faculty, staff, community member, and neighbor a chance to do more, not less. Capital University serves a diverse student body of nearly 3,500, including traditional undergraduates, degree-completion and graduate students. We offer 60 majors and more than 50 minors in the areas of Music, Arts and Communication, Business and Management, Education, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science, Nursing and Health, and Social Sciences. We offer graduate degrees and/or post-degree certification in Education, Law, Nursing, Business and Music Education. Deeply connected to the capital city we call home, Capital is at the epicenter of purpose, possibility and the power of purple. Helping to fuel the vibrant metropolitan area of Columbus – a city that often makes “top 10” lists for livability, technology, opportunity and jobs – students plug into a diverse economy that’s home to many Fortune 500 companies in the third largest city in the Midwest.
