Antioch University was founded in 1852 in Yellow Springs, Ohio as a private, liberal arts college. Horace Mann, known as the founder of the American public school system and the first president of Antioch, pioneered the introduction of coeducation, non-sectarianism, and non-segregation in order to educate “minds free from prejudice and yearning after truth.”
With diverse campuses in New Hampshire, Ohio, Seattle, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, Antioch University today stands stronger than ever. As a private, nonprofit, comprehensive institution, Antioch University is a singularly accredited, highly integrated University. Antioch offers face-to-face, hybrid and fully-online coursework, and bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in the following academic areas: Arts and Humanities, Business, Management, and Leadership; Counseling and Health Professions; Education; Environmental Studies and Sustainability; Interdisciplinary and Liberal Studies; and Psychology.
