Hesston College is a Christ-centered community where each student is educated and nurtured academically, socially, and spiritually. We offer both Associate and Bachelor degree programs. Our specialization in associate degrees reflects our believe that the first 2 years should be treated as more than something to get out of the way. They should be seen as an opportunity to lay a solid foundation for the rest of your life. Our Bachelor degrees are designed to include hands on learning in a diverse environment.
