Research Guide

It is our Philosophy that mature practicing professionals with extensive experience should be permitted the opportunity to study for advanced degrees without a rigid, formalized structure. The Heed School of Theology  program of "Freedom to Learn" provides this opportunity.

Following a "University Without Walls" philosophy, accepted students are permitted a wide range of experiences, limited only by their imagination, to meet educational and personal goals they establish for themselves with faculty guidance.

Most students have studied many hours and have years of practical experience.

History of Heed University

In 1966 the basic concepts of a new and innovative institution of higher learning was conceived by a group of educators with extensive but varied experience. There was a felt need for a graduate program for professionals that would be sensitive to and "Heed" the continually changing needs of modern society.

Heed University was established by concerned professionals who developed a functional program which recognizes the unique needs of practicing
professionals. Traditional, rigidly-structured programs were not serving a significant percentage of the population. In order to serve this group, Heed
Univeristy has embarked on a bold and imaginative effort to restructure the educational experience, as well as the academic year. The Heed approach to education combines the positive aspects of both the traditional and innovative concepts that our   educational community has validated. 

Our programs are designed to enable students to work at their own pace, to learn from each others' disciplines and experiences, and to pursue areas of knowledge of interest to them. We profess a humanistic philosophy and look for personal interaction that will be meaningful, lasting and productive.

The programs are designed for the intelligent and creative individual so that (s)he can further develop knowledge, skills and interpersonal relationships.

Heed University expects a high level of scholarship from students and maintains high academic standards, consistent with traditional education.   Our programs do not place undue bureaucratic roadblocks in the path of students who honestly and energetically pursue knowledge - a quest that can be of benefit to us all.
