Martin University, located in Indianapolis, the capital of Indiana, was established in 1977 with the objective of providing a practical, quality education for minorities. This basic goal still holds true today, though students from all walks of life and all ethnicities continue to be welcome.
The college was accredited in 1987, and in 1990, changed its name from Martin Center College to Martin University. This institution uses a method of teaching called andragogy, which centers on the needs of the learner and engaging students, as opposed to pedagogy. This blends the students’ life experiences with the classroom and provides a holistic learning environment, significantly widening the experience of overall education in Indianapolis.
Martin University grants two master’s degrees (in Community Psychology and Urban Ministry Studies) and 17 undergraduate degrees.
Financial aid is strongly addressed at this college, named as it was after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and St. Martin de Porres. More than 75% of its student body are there because of some form of financial assistance. Class sizes hover around 20 students, with a student to teacher ratio of 14 to one.
Martin University subscribes to the PLA, or Prior Learning Assessment program, which enables students to receive actual credit for their life experiences. The school also helps its students to expedite transferring credit from other schools.
Classes are available every day and evening except Sunday.
Continuing on the holistic theme, Martin University has created a sector for career education and a Healing Village, whose goal it is to help students realize healthy lifestyles that will benefit them and their families for life.
Enrollment in Martin University is presently around 600, including about 50 graduate students. In-state and out of state tuition for undergraduates is currently $13,200, with a charge of $440 per credit hour. In-state and out of state tuition for graduate students is $9,360 at this writing.
