The Houghton College distinctive educational approach combines a high quality liberal arts program with Christian commitment and global engagement. Small class size and a mentoring community translate to graduates who are spiritually invested, culturally aware, and prepared to impact society.
Forbes, U.S. News and Washington Monthly have cited Houghton as a top national liberal arts college. Nearly two-thirds of our alumni go on to obtain advanced degrees from Harvard, Yale, Oxford and other prestigious institutions in fields such as medicine, law, business and education.
A comprehensive curriculum helps students to think critically, communicate effectively and engage in global issues. More than 40 majors and programs are available; an innovative First Year Honors Program provides challenges for selected freshmen, while the Summer Research Institute and senior honors projects help students succeed in graduate school.
Christian mentors and peers challenge students to live a life of faithfulness locally and overseas. Our students are regularly found tutoring refugees in the city of Buffalo, studying religious and cultural dynamics in central Europe, and learning about international development in west Africa. These experiences shape and transform students to live a life of purpose—a life of distinction.
