Please see an overview of our Academic Divisions here at Highland.

Business & Technology

The Business and Technology Division stretches into the many different areas of automotive service, agricultural management, equine science, early childhood education, business administration, computer programming, industrial technology, and cosmetology.

Because many of the areas in the Business and Technology Division require a short-term commitment of 12 to 24-months of education, you will have the opportunity to put your education to work in little time. Once you complete your degree or certificate, you will be ready to meet the work world head on—you can start a new career and improve your earning power right away. With an infusion of business courses into our curriculum, many of our business and technology graduates choose to establish their own businesses.


Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts

The Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts Division is one of our cornerstones. Our social sciences area is a birthplace to great thinkers, philosophers, political leaders, and social and behavioral scientists. The humanities area gives students an opportunity to find and enrich your artistic and creative talents.

Humanities is key during college and life beyond the college classroom. A strong grounding in Humanities is important for every student. You may choose to take a class or two, or you may find a new interest—even an academic home. This can be your beginning of your quest for advanced degrees.

Natural Science and Mathematics

The Natural Science and Mathematics Division houses all science and math programs. Professionals in the division, such as biological scientists, chemists, environmentalists, health care providers, physical trainers, teachers, and veterinarians, need to be prepared for exciting opportunities and challenges.

If you pursue any of these fields, you will use the latest advances in equipment. Depending on the specific field, you will also study chronic infectious viruses and new strands of diseases, or focus on biological and environmental concerns.

You will learn the basics of science and health degrees in these programs. You will be prepared for advanced baccalaureate-level classes as well.

Nursing and Allied Health

The Nursing and Allied Health Division houses the

full-time and part-time ADN, Basic Nursing Assistant, Medical Assistant, Emergency Medical Services & Paramedic (Through Swedish American Health System), and Phlebotemy programs.

All programs are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and taught by caring professionals in the field.

The ADN program prepares students to take the the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Upon successful completion of the exam, the student is eligible to become licensed as a registered nurse (RN).

BSN options are available through our partner schools. Students interested in completing a BSN should contact Heather Moore at 815.599.3483.
