Wittenberg College was founded in 1845 by a group of ministers in the English Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Ohio, which had previously separated from the recently established German-speaking Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of Ohio and Other States. A Wittenberg education consists of three parts: a broad base in the liberal arts, an intensive course of study in a major, and an enhanced course of study that makes up a minor or electives. Wittenberg also places considerable emphasis on strong speaking, writing, critical thinking and research skills to ensure that its students are competitive grad school applicants, outstanding future employees and global leaders. At the same time, a Wittenberg education provides an in-depth investigation of human behavior and diversity.
