    School Overview

    Beulah Heights Bible Institute, founded in 1918, first educated local students in the surrounding area of Atlanta, Georgia. By 1946, the institution relocated to Lakeland, Florida, and then in the 1960s, the school developed into a four-year Bible institute setting goals to include a graduate program. In the 1970s, as programs expanded and Beulah Heights gained accreditation, the college changed names to Beulah Heights Bible College. Once graduate studies were set into motion just after the turn of the century, the Board of Trustees approved a name change once more, and the college transitioned to Beulah Heights University. 

    Students can pursue associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees, in addition to a doctorate degree. Beulah Heights University recognizes time constraints and required flexibility for working professionals and non-traditional students by sponsoring the Beulah Heights University Online Program. Regardless of location, students can complete their degrees at BHU.
