Profile Image


Christ. Scholarship. Service.
Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college committed to developing the whole person, assisting students in understanding all areas of human knowledge from a Christian world-view, and preparing them to impact their world for Christ.

Founded in 1897 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Huntington University offers both graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. The main campus is located in Huntington, Indiana, a town of 18,000, near Indiana’s second-largest city, Fort Wayne.

HU also operates academic programs in Fort Wayne for its Doctorate in Occupational Therapy and in Peoria, Arizona, for Film, Animation, Broadcasting, and Graphic Design. Since 1990, HU has invested more than $30 million in new facilities and infrastructure, including state-of-the-art academic buildings, technology, and faculty training and development.

Huntington students not only choose HU for its academic programs but for its Christ-centered community. A University-wide approach to spiritual growth features weekly chapel services, guest speakers, small groups, and classroom integration of faith and learning. As part of the University’s service-oriented mission, the HU students, faculty, and staff bring the community to life by volunteering more than 11,000 hours each year.
Huntington’s diverse student population represents 37 states in the United States and 26 countries from around the world.

For more than two decades, Huntington University has been consistently ranked among the best colleges in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report and Forbes. HU is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU). According to national student satisfaction surveys, Huntington’s high ratings for excellent classroom instruction, knowledgeable faculty, and spiritual growth exceed national averages of CCCU peer schools. 

For more than 120 years, Huntington University has been training leaders to advance their professional careers and personal lives. HU’s Graduate School has closely followed this tradition by offering advanced degrees that are specifically designed to engage in experience-based scholarship, integrate what students learn into their unique professional context, and help students transform the community in which they live.

Business Administration
Huntington University’s MBA degree features an experience and project-based approach to education. You will learn from advanced course work while simultaneously engaging in practical hands-on experiences through local companies, nonprofit organizations, and Huntington University ventures. By using an experiential approach, HU is positioned to offer exceptional opportunities for learning as well as being a business resource for area companies through its graduate students. The MBA program is designed to be completed in just two years and has both face-to-face and online components.

Leadership and Counseling
The Huntington University Institute for Leadership and Counseling provides master’s degree programs in Counseling and Organizational Leadership as well as credentialing in Counseling, Leadership, and Executive Coaching. At Huntington, students will be taught by professors who are Christian scholars, have earned advanced degrees, and actively meet with clients on a regular basis. Each brings a different area of expertise to the institute and will work closely with you to ensure you gain the breadth of knowledge necessary to become a successful practitioner in your chosen field. The Counseling and Leadership degrees can be completed in 24 months.

HU’s Master of Education program is designed to help students develop professionally, fulfill teaching license renewals, or earn a master’s degree—all while students continue to teach or work. HU’s MEd program provides the advanced scholarship needed to improve student learning and enhance their careers in the areas of TESOL, Elementary, Early Adolescent, and Adolescent and Young Adult Education. HU courses are offered in face-to-face, hybrid, or online formats, depending on the needs and design of the specific course. MEd students can finish their degrees in 15–18 months.

Ministry and Missions
Huntington University’s graduate Christian Ministry programs train students to effectively impact their world for Christ. Each program challenges students with sound biblical and theological principles to help them effectively lead ministries and fulfill the mission of the Church. Huntington’s two-year programs are offered online in seven-week structures with each course offered every other year. Special arrangements can be made for denominational groups or other organizations that would like a face-to-face program in the northeast Indiana area. HU offers Master of Arts degrees in Global Youth Ministry and Pastoral Leadership.

Occupational Therapy
Huntington University’s doctoral program in Occupational Therapy (OTD) is a three-year, full-time degree program that will further students’ development in faith, health and wellness, leadership, advanced practice, research, and professional service. Students in the OTD program will complete clinical experiences in Indiana, across the country, and internationally. Each student will design, develop, and implement an advanced practice project with faculty oversight. Examples of these projects include fitting wheelchairs in a developing country, implementing program evaluations of a health care system, or designing therapeutic apps for occupational therapy interventions. HU’s OTD program is fully accredited, and graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapist.
