School Details

Since 1871, Elmhurst College has prepared students for lives of expanding service, opportunity and achievement. In 1924, the school formally assumed the name Elmhurst College (it had been called that colloquially for years), and began offering the bachelor of arts degree. The first leader of the new four-year college was a 1912 alumnus, H. Richard Niebuhr, who would become one of the premier theologians of the 20th century.

A private college in the heart of the Chicago metropolitan area, Elmhurst College is committed to helping students reach their potential—in college and in the world beyond. With more than 60 undergraduate majors and 16 graduate programs, Elmhurst boasts small classes and professors that get to know their students as individuals. Many undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs at Elmhurst College are offered entirely online.
