Brenau University provides liberal arts graduate and undergraduate education through its women’s college in Gainesville, its coeducational satellite campuses in metro Atlanta and other Georgia locations, and its fully accredited online college.

Brenau students prepare to lead extraordinary lives with a curriculum that provides a global view of society; encourages appreciation for the arts and music; develops scientific, social and cultural curiosity; and empowers communications skills. Brenau confers degrees in nursing, education, business, communication, occupational therapy, clinical psychology, humanities, interior design, dance, music and many other academic disciplines. Intercollegiate sports are expanding, and Brenau offers rich theater, dance, music, arts and Greek traditions.

Brenau’s 55-acre main campus graces fast-growing Gainesville’s tree-lined historic section, about 50 miles north of Atlanta, near Lake Lanier and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
