Our Faculty

The quality of teaching and mentoring in Messiah's politics department was as good or better than anything I experienced at Oxford or Harvard.  But a Messiah College education doesn't stop with a textbook — students are encouraged to think about how the Christian faith should shape our understanding of the subjects we studied.   As a result, the education I received at Messiah has become more and more valuable to me as time passes.
