Since 1883, Reinhardt has focused on meeting student needs one person at a time. Reinhardt's emphasis is on personalized education, best provided in small classes by talented professors who challenge and care about their students. As the only institution of higher education founded in Cherokee County, Reinhardt has long been a popular higher educational resource for area communities, but as the institution added undergraduate programs, graduate programs and changed its name to University, its sphere of influence has continued to expand across the state, the region and the world.
Students find Reinhardt’s academic programs engaging, challenging, and rewarding - an investment that yields positive returns to their personal and professional lives. Graduates, who take full advantage of Reinhardt’s opportunities, enter their professions with the richness of a broad, liberal arts education coupled with specific professional preparation through participation in engaged classroom experiences, co-curricular enrichments, challenging research projects, rewarding service initiatives, exciting internships, and life-transforming studies abroad.
Reinhardt students can choose from four graduate programs or 40+ undergraduate programs of study which range from business, nursing, education and music to political science, theater and digital art. In addition, Reinhardt's Public Safety Institute includes a Police Academy which offers P.O.S.T. Basic Peace Officer Certification and 15 credit hours towards an associate degree in criminal justice and other public-safety related programs.
