Welcome to High Point University Academics

High Point University is committed to academic excellence. With small classes, caring professors, and a myriad of student success stories, we have positioned our University as a place for learners to thrive. The array of majors is vast and each has been uniquely designed to challenge, inspire and transform.

Our goal is to feed our students' appetite for academic achievement and equip them for further education, the job market or a life of service. Within the classroom environment, students find High Point professors to be engaging mentors, eager to share their own research and scholarly interests; and beyond the classroom students are constantly met with opportunities to learn in a very practical and innovative way.

It is High Point University's signature experiential learning program that differentiates this collegiate experience from others. Here, the world is the lab. Students have opportunities for Study Abroad, Study America, off-campus practicum and internships, independent study, undergraduate research and collaboration, service learning, and volunteer partnerships with numerous nonprofit agencies. These outlets reinforce what is taught in our classes while providing students with resources for professional networking and deep, practical knowledge of their fields.

With the academic experience in the classroom, the experiential opportunities available and the University's commitment to holistic, character-based learning, our students receive an education that is unsurpassed.
