HBU offers students a higher education. By combining faith, reason and liberal arts into one core curriculum, we’ve created an education that goes further than most. We offer an education that’s based, not only on technical training, but the teachings of Christ, reason, and the past successes and failures of humanity. It is an education that puts our students on the fast track to being leaders, both in their careers and in their communities. HBU strives to send its students out into the world with a better understanding of how to live a fulfilling, accomplished and righteous life.
