Welcome from the Provost

I am glad you have chosen to browse the information about the academic program at UMHB. While UMHB offers a multitude of wonderful, varied, and enriching opportunities and experiences for students throughout their college years, academics is the life-blood of our institution.

I encourage you to explore carefully the full range of our academic opportunities. UMHB offers degrees in 49 different majors and four graduate degrees. Academic opportunities are not confined to the classroom at UMHB. Our students participate in both local and national internship programs and we have study-abroad programs that reach six continents. We regularly bring influential people to campus to stimulate our thinking such as management expert Dr. Kenneth Blanchard, former President George H. W. Bush, and former First Lady Barbara Bush.

At UMHB you will receive far more than a diploma-a UMHB degree will provide you with the intellectual and spiritual foundation for a successful and rewarding life as you fulfill God's call in your chosen vocation. Our faculty represent the best of the Christian-scholar ideal, our curricula offer a variety of opportunities for academic enrichment, and our students enhance the 160+ year heritage of engaged learning and faithful service that are hallmarks of our University.

Let me know if I can help you during your search in any way.
