College Degree Finder

The increasingly secular nature of the United States has been on the minds of many religious leaders across the country. Among Americans ages 18-29, 25% say they are not currently affiliated with any particular religion. There are still a number of universities that boast a high number of religious students, however. According to the 2018 Princeton Review list, the most religious students hail from some institutionally religious schools as well as secular universities.

The school with the most religious students is Gordon College, a Christian liberal arts school just north of Boston. Other explicitly religious schools that made the list include Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, CA, Brigham Young University in Provo, UT, and Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.

Overall, Catholic institutions dominate the list, which follows from the rich history of educational institutions within the Catholic faith. If you are looking for a school with a large number of religious students, especially those that practice your same faith, there are a number of options. Through careful research, you can find an institution that works for you.
