or evenings. This makes it much easier for our
students to maintain jobs, have time with their
families, and be involved in other activities.
We exemplify our career focus in working

    Herzing University
    Rich History
    Herzing University began in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in February 1965 as a class of twelve
    students in a seven-month computer course. Over the past forty-five years, Herzing University
    has expanded geographically and programmatically under the same leadership to encompass
    eleven campuses. The campuses offer diploma, associate degree, bachelor’s degree, and master’s
    degree programs in the fields of technology, business, healthcare, design and criminal justice.
    This geographic presence includes the Online Campus, which provides a Herzing education to
    students all over the world in over 50 academic programs.

    Reputation for Success
    Herzing University has become a significant educational force in the markets it serves. With a
    foundation based on high ethical standards, our commitment to student service and the success
    of our graduates directly benefit employers and the communities they serve. Our primary focus
    is, and always has been, providing students the
                                                                                                        Herzing University
    administrative support, academic knowledge,                                                         Madison, Wisconsin
    hands-on skills, and personal growth required
    to achieve their academic goals and find gainful
    employment in their field of study.

    Learn from Industry Experts
    Herzing’s career-focused courses are taught by
    dedicated and caring instructors who bring a
    blend of practical industry experience and valued
    academic credentials into every classroom. As
    current experts in their field, our instructors make
    sure you’ll graduate with the relevant knowledge
    and skills that are attractive to today’s employers.

    Hands-on Learning
    The best way to learn something is by actually doing it. Based on this principle, many Herzing
    classes have two components: lecture/demonstration and lab. Some labs will be conducted in
    our state-of-the-industry computer, design or medical labs while others will be more situational
    in nature (such as creating and implementing a business strategy). Either way, you’ll actually be
    performing the same tasks that professionals in your field perform, thereby gaining valuable,
    real-life experience. Many healthcare courses also include a clinical experience where students
    work in healthcare facilities right alongside healthcare professionals.

           Convenient. Caring.
              When we asked why our alumni and current students chose Herzing University, they shared the

   The degree of education that’s right for you.*
   We know that educational objectives vary from one person to
   another. That’s why we offer four levels of education:

   Master’s Degree
   A master’s degree communicates to employers, clients, and
   colleagues that you hold a high level of credibility and expertise
   in your field. This degree can be very valuable when looking to
   move into an executive-level position in your current field, or
   when transitioning into a different industry or sector.

   Bachelor’s Degree
   A bachelor of science degree is one of the most desired
   credentials sought by employers. A bachelor’s degree
   can set you up for a lifetime of success – on average,
   persons with a bachelor’s degree will earn over 60%
   more than those with only a high school diploma
   (according to The College Board).

   Associate Degree
   If you’re interested in attaining a college degree that
   combines hands-on technical training with a com-
   plementary general studies program, our associate
   of science degree programs can be completed in
   as little as 16 months, and the credits you earn
   can be applied to our bachelor of science degree

   For those looking to transition into a new
   career as quickly as possible, a diploma
   provides the core courses you’ll need to get
   working in your new field…in as little as
   4 months.

    Three ways to learn
           On Campus – ‘block’ schedule
           Attend classes on campus for the traditional classroom
           experience. In most programs, classes are generally scheduled
           in a morning, afternoon or evening block, giving you a more
           convenient class schedule. You’ll receive hands-on instruction
           and interaction with other students and instructors, and
           have easy access to educational services such as educational
           funding, career development, lab and library resources. By
           attending class on campus, you’ll also be able to participate
           in traditional college life activities such as student clubs, and
           special events.

           Online – maximum flexibility
           Some programs can be taken 100% online, providing the
           greatest flexibility in fitting your education around your busy
           schedule. Online classes are accessible at any time from the
           comfort of your home or office, without having to worry
           about traffic, parking, and scheduling conflicts with work or
           personal obligations.

                              Get the best of both worlds by taking some
                              classes at the campus and some classes
                              online. This option combines in-person
                              instruction with scheduling flexibility.
                              EdFlex also lets you take classes online
                              that may not be available at the campus in
                              the term you need them, so you’re able to
                              graduate on time.

           “ Now that I’ve completed the Homeland Security
             program, I’ve put myself in a position to become
             a police officer for the city of Hoover, which
             requires a college degree. The education I received
             gave me an opportunity to learn about the finer
             aspects of police investigations, as well as dealing
             with the public.”

 What Instructors
 have to say about Herzing
Dorothy Wright, Math Instructor
“Herzing University offers an opportunity to share my gifts and talents in a supportive,
	 student-centered	environment.	Working	at	Herzing	is	truly	an	enlightening	experience.”

Cedriee Thomas, Medical Billing and Insurance Coding Program Director
“As an instructor at Akron Institute [of Herzing University], I feel that I have to be a role model
  as well as an educator to my students. My responsibility as an educator is to provide information
  to my students and help them understand why they need to know this information. It is also
  my responsibility to provide a learning environment that motivates students to succeed. The
  best thing that happens in my classroom is the success of my students. When my students are a
	 success,	I	feel	I	have	accomplished	my	task.”		

Yahia Fawzi, IT Program Director
“Most if not all of our computer networking courses are hands-on based. The students learn
  the theories in class and apply them in the labs. Our computer networking labs contain top-
  of-the-line computer systems, Cisco routers and switches, wireless equipment, VoIP, and utilize
  virtualization tech-
  nologies to install and
  configure a variety of
  operating systems such
	 as	Windows	and	Linux.”

Azam Qadri, Dental
Assisting Instructor
“We send these kids out
  to the job market and we
  want them to get hired.
  We don’t want them to Madison - Game Development Classroom                 New Orleans - Anatomy classroom
  fail; we want this
	 education	to	be	a	stepping	stone	for	them	to	enter	the	dental	field	and	to	earn	a	great	living.”

Susan Gebhardt, English Instructor
“The difference between Herzing and a traditional college is the fact that I get to make a
  difference in someone’s life. At a traditional college I may not do so because there are so many
	 students	who	do	not	get	the	individual	attention	that	I	give	my	students	here.”
