Don’t just be in your chosen field; stand out in it. That’s the Peace advantage.

At William Peace University, we know that good students can become great students through an approach to higher education that’s less conventional and more involving. Here, you will participate, collaborate and gain valuable real-world experience. You will complete an internship, career development courses, a personal financial management class and a four-year writing program. At Peace, we won’t just know your name – we’ll know your interests and your aspirations. And we’ll work together to help you achieve them.
