Hope graduates are educated to think about life’s most important issues with clarity, wisdom, and a deep understanding of the foundational commitments of the historic Christian faith. They are agents of Hope who live faithfully into their vocations.
At this distinguished four-year liberal arts college, academic excellence and vibrant Christian faith join to strengthen each other in a supportive and welcoming community. While historically affiliated with the Reformed Church in America, Hope is ecumenically diverse and values open discussion of matters of faith and respect for the opinions of others.
Our 91 majors and minors in liberal arts and pre-professional fields provide unusual flexibility for students to combine their interests. Known as a powerhouse in the sciences, Hope is also the only private, liberal arts college to have national accreditation in art, dance, music and theatre.
