Heidelberg College was founded in 1850 by members of the German Reformed Church who named it after the Heidelberg Catechism of 1563. Seeking to minister to the German population of Ohio, the Revs. Reuben and Jeremiah H. Good established a church-affiliated institution staffed by a largely theologically trained faculty. The Heidelberg campus is as unique and honored as its nationally recognized academic programs. The collage of historic and contemporary architectural styles on the tree-lined campus reflects the diversity of students, staff and faculty who have graced Heidelberg's halls for more than 160 years. In 1987, after a 61-year absence, Heidelberg reinstituted a graduate program. Currently, students can earn master's degrees in counseling, business administration and athletic training, in addition to bachelor of arts, bachelor of music and bachelor of science degrees. In 2009, Heidelberg College became Heidelberg University. The name was changed to reflect more appropriately the academic offerings of the school. Heidelberg has been continuously accredited by the North Central Accrediting Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools since that organization was founded in 1913. Heidelberg offers students a strong liberal arts education with professional development opportunities. Research, professional growth and leadership are emphasized through the programming and curriculum.
