A fine institution of higher learning in the Christian tradition, Beulah Heights University is “developing Christian leaders for ministry and marketplace.” And in our opinion, they do a fine job of it from their Atlanta location, particularly for the Black community. One of their strongest and most effective programs is Urban Education, in which bachelor’s and master’s degrees are awarded.
Beulah Heights’s student population is centered around mature – ages 25-plus – and serious adults, most of whom attend on a part time basis. While the school offers an MBA degree, it also offers popular degree programs in philosophy and religion.
Surprisingly for such a small school (about 700 students), about half the students take at least some of the classes online. To us, this indicates forward thinking and support a mission to better serve its target market which appears to be urban Blacks. In addition to a very reasonable net cost to attend, we applaud the school for a very important – in our opinion – criteria of quality: Its students love the school.
