Programs of distinction
Our new HYPE Program will help you develop leadership skills and cultivate your emotional intelligence to prepare you for an increasingly competitive job market. Through interaction with big-name speakers, hands-on workshops, and learning trips, you’ll be ready to tackle the challenges of life after college.

If you’re interested in a graduate degree, you can earn one for free through our PlusOneAdvantage Free MBA Program. Any student who completes a bachelor’s degree (in any major) at Heidelberg in four years with at least a 3.0 GPA will be eligible to stay and earn an MBA degree tuition free.

Academic excellence
Heidelberg University encourages students to try something new, to learn something different, and to create something unique. All those “somethings” are experiences that prepare you for your life personally and professionally. Our goal is to provide every student with skills, experiences, and knowledge that will not only help them after graduation but will continue to help them throughout their career.

Student life
Ninety-two percent of our students are involved in extracurricular activities. At Heidelberg you are encouraged to continue activities you love and discover new ones. Join the intramural ping-pong league, travel to San Francisco with Model UN, sing with our show choir, and build houses with Habitat for Humanity. With over 70 clubs, organizations, Greek groups, and athletic or intramural teams to join, there is something for everyone. 

Professors at Heidelberg want you to be a part of the discussion. You won’t just sit in a classroom and absorb information; you will be an active participant in the discussion and direction of your education. You’ll also spend time outside of the classroom with your professors traveling, conducting research, and as club advisors. At Heidelberg professors know your strengths, weaknesses, and career goals. That’s how they can advise and help you map out your future.

Honors Program
Heidelberg’s Honors Program challenges students to reach their full potential. Benefits of the program include honors courses that replace general education classes, early registration, 24-hour access to the Bryenton Honors House, special study abroad opportunities, accelerated graduation, and an honors diploma. Explore your interests and abilities with supportive peers.

Crossing cultures
Heidelberg students travel the world. They conduct biological research in Belize, work with communities on the Texas-Mexico border, complete business internships in Australia, and study abroad in places like Germany, England, and Morocco. Studying abroad is a transformative experience where you learn to navigate the complexities of being a global citizen and deepen your understanding of the world and your place in it.
