Bethany College

At Bethany, a liberal arts institution affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we believe knowledge is power- a motto often chanted in Swedish by Reverend Dr. Carl Aaron Swensson, the founder of Bethany College.



Bethany College was founded in 1881, in a quaint Swedish community, with a mission to educate, develop, and challenge individuals to reach for truth and excellence as they lead lives of faith, learning and service. 


Martin Luther, the theologian behind Lutheranism, believed our ultimate purpose is to serve others through our relationships and our vocation. If you choose to attend Bethany College, you will grow your mind with knowledge, which will give you the power to explore your talents and faith, and expand your relationships, as you navigate the path to your ultimate purpose.


Bethany College is looking for people who want to make a lasting, positive contribution through education, either directly or indirectly. Bethany is a fulfilling place to use professional talents; each individual can have a major impact on the institution and those it serves.
