Lee University is known for its religious education, though its pre-medicine, business, elementary education and music programs are also considered among the strongest of its 49 majors. Student living is made unique by academic requirements, including frequent chapel attendance, 10 hours of service, and participation in a study abroad program, typically over summer break. Bachelor's degrees are conferred through the College of Arts & Sciences, the Helen DeVos College of Education, the School of Music, the School of Religion and the Center for Adult & Professional Studies. In 2011, Lee was ranked the 54th best university in the South by the U.S. News and World Report.
