Academics at C-SC
Culver-Stockton offers undergraduate degrees in more than 80 majors and minors in business, education, fine arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics. There are also three graduate programs with specializations to tailor your education to your needs.
Our student-to-faculty ratio is 14:1.
A typical 15-week semester is divided into a 12-week term and a 3-week term. Students take three to four courses during the 12-week term. Most students focus on only one course during the 3-week term. They often use this term to participate in internships, clinical training and courses that include domestic and international travel.
Many students enter C-SC without a declared major. We have advisors who are trained and focus on helping students determine their ultimate career goals. The Career and Internship Services Office can also assist by administering a career profiler test designed to provide ideas of career clusters that would be a fit for you. Once you have those results, you can select classes within our General Education categories to further explore those areas.
The Honors program offers opportunities for highly motivated students that combine original research, intensive writing and creative expression. Students who complete the program requirements are designated as a college Honors Scholar at commencement.
Over the past three years, over 93% of Culver-Stockton graduates were employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of commencement. Several majors have even higher placement records. Zippia, Inc. has ranked C-SC as the #1 institution in Missouri for graduates finding employment.
