Charleston Southern University: A higher education, a deeper purpose
Sponsored by: Charleston Southern University

Choosing the right college is a challenge. The journey starts with a lot of questions. Do they have a degree I am looking for? Is the campus safe and secure? How much is tuition?

At Charleston Southern University, academic excellence is our mission. With 48 undergraduate majors and eight graduate programs, students can pursue professional degrees in Nursing, Education, Science, Business, Computer Science, Music, Criminal Justice, Mathematics, Graphic Design, Christian Studies and Pre-Engineering. CSU has courses available on campus and online and seeks to develop students with a well-rounded liberal arts education grounded in a biblical worldview.
Founded in 1964, Charleston Southern is the largest accredited, independent university in South Carolina, enrolling 3,600 students. CSU is a small campus by design. The distinct environment provides students with the opportunity to grow academically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.

College is a life experience – and for some – it is the best four years of their lives. At CSU, we recognize how important campus life is. From live concerts to intramural athletics, academic clubs, missions and weekly worship services, life on campus is vibrant and spirited.

CSU is also the home to the Buccaneers. With 16 NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletic programs for both men and women, CSU competes in the Big South Conference, fielding teams in football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, cross country, track and field, golf, tennis and volleyball.
Charleston Southern is nationally recognized as one of America’s Best Christian Colleges, U.S. News and World Report Best Online Program, a College of Distinction, America’s 100 Best College Buys, a member of The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll and a Military Friendly School.
