Overview

An Active and Engaged Experience Distinguishes Wittenberg

An infectious energy exists at Wittenberg, one that permeates all that students do, whether that's conducting a research project with a professor, leading a Student Senate meeting or tutoring local school children. Wittenberg students daily engage in college life and in the world around them. Avenues for engaged learning exist in all facets of campus life, such as the WittEntrepreneurs Program for students who want to launch a business on campus, the Springfield Center for the Arts at Wittenberg for those interested in arts management and arts education; the clinical intern program for aspiring health professionals, or the restoration of Buck Creek, which flows nears Wittenberg and provides the ideal location for environmental research and recreational activity.

Great Teaching Defines the Academic Environment

Highly committed to undergraduate teaching excellence, Wittenberg's faculty has been recognized at state, national and international levels. In the last 10 years, Wittenberg faculty members have won 16 Fulbright awards, more than any other liberal arts college in the state of Ohio. Wittenberg has had more Ohio Professors of the Year than any other four-year institution in the state, and recently the university received two Top 20 Princeton Review rankings for "Best Classroom Experience" (#11) and "Professors Get High Marks" (#15). Small class settings ensure that students have access to great teaching and challenging coursework but also the ability to develop meaningful relationships with professors as mentors and friends.

Wittenberg Offers Innovative Academic Programs in a Liberal Arts Context

A Wittenberg education consists of three parts: a broad liberal arts base, intensive work in a major, and a choice of either a minor or a course of electives. Innovative programs complement the core courses so that students find a useful balance between theory and practical application. These opportunities include programs with a global focus, such as East Asian Studies, Russian and Central Eurasian Studies, and the recently-created International Studies major; the new health sciences minor for students interested in healthcare administration and the medical fields; the Summer Screenwriting Institute and the Summer Journalism Institute for developing professional writing skills; and a cutting-edge computational science minor.

Wittenberg Students Enjoy a Vibrant On-campus Community

As a community of thinkers, leaders, athletes and, most importantly, doers, Wittenberg offers one of the most energetic campuses in the country, complete with 23 varsity sports and a thriving intramurals program, service opportunities abroad and close to home, more than 125 student organizations, a Greek system and an influential student government. Whatever the passion, whether it's comic books or sailing, cave exploration or physics, a group of like-minded students can be found at Wittenberg.

Wittenberg Offers a Highly Personal Environment

Committed to its heritage as a Lutheran university, Wittenberg strives to create a welcoming community for students of all backgrounds and traditions. Always willing to lend a helping hand, Wittenberg students find a friendly, supportive campus where they quickly feel at home and comfortable to explore their values, develop their individual gifts and discover their callings. The caring and nurturing culture means that individual attention is the norm both in and out of the classroom, and the whole person-focused education leads students on a personal path to understanding, achievement and purpose.

Wittenberg Students Develop the Skills and Confidence to Make an Impact on the World

Through meaningful work, purposeful service and personal leadership, Wittenberg students graduate with a sense of who they are, what they believe and where they're going. Coursework takes students out of the classroom and into the field, lab, local businesses and schools. Community service and a broad range of study abroad opportunities immerse students in the world -- from the local Springfield area to Europe to Africa -- teaching them how to be responsible global citizens. The university's unique Emerging Leaders Program supports and encourages student leaders from the moment they enter Wittenberg. The insights and skills gained through these experiences make our graduates highly desirable to prestigious graduate programs, major corporations and non-profit groups around the country.
