Your new home
Heidelberg University is more than a place. It is a feeling. A feeling of freedom and flexibility to make your own choices. A feeling of comfort and support to help you realize your potential. A feeling of optimism that elicits new discoveries and moments of greatness. A feeling of home.
That feeling can be hard to explain, but it is what allows our students and alumni to be successful in their careers and happy in their lives. At Heidelberg, you’ll receive the benefits of small classes, personal attention, and faculty mentorship. You’ll also have opportunities to present at conferences, eat dinner with CEOs, conduct your own research, and make an impact on campus and in the community. What you do matters, and who you do it with means something.
It’s a fast-paced world out there, and you need to be ready to jump in with both feet. That’s why Heidelberg created the HYPE Career Ready Program to provide you with the opportunity to practice and improve your professional skills—starting year one. Through interactive workshops, off-campus excursions, and meeting up close and personal with celebrity-status professionals, you’ll steadily grow your confidence and skill set.
Discover your calling
You are encouraged to try something new, learn something different, and 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.
Gain an advantage
Heidelberg has several graduate programs, and if you’re interested in pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree, you can earn one for free through our PlusOne-Advantage 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 enroll in our one-year MBA program tuition free.
Join a community of passionate doers! Our students pursue their interests through clubs, organizations, athletics, travel, and simply hanging out with friends. 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.
Our faculty inspire
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 at social events. At Heidelberg, professors know your strengths, weaknesses, and career goals. That’s how they can help you map out your future.
You become stronger by being challenged. Our Life of the Mind Honors Program is a comprehensive approach to empowering you to explore your abilities and interests within a supportive community of your peers. You’ll take interdisciplinary classes and sit next to students from all corners of campus. The Honors Program is a place to explore unique interests, meet new people, and practice sharing your point of view. Together, we can better each other.
