Academics

Educating for Life

Academics are at the heart of our mission. Providing students of promise with the needed education for high-demand fields will enhance the student experience. Culver-Stockton College offers majors and minors in more than 60 fields. The College is committed to offering a challenging and progressive curriculum, rooted in the liberal arts and responsive to market trends and student needs. Culver-Stockton’s campus is home to nearly 1000 students who choose from more than 60 majors and minors.
Students can even create their own major, making their options limitless. On average, for every 15 students, C-SC has one faculty member, with 71 percent holding the highest degree in their field. Culver-Stockton College’s unique curriculum provides countless real-world learning opportunities for students. Coupled with our distinctive 12/3 semester calendar, our hands on approach to learning equips C-SC students with skills they can use as soon as they graduate in the workplace and throughout their lives. Our academics are rooted in real-world lessons.
Students have numerous opportunities to experience leadership, professional experience, research & innovation, service learning, simulations, travel study and visual/performing arts. During a student’s time on “the Hill” their learning will set them up for true success in life. Advancing the Student Experience through funding for development of a Center for Academic Excellence, a Center for Experiential Learning, development and naming of schools (Business, Education, Health Science), providing classroom space for the divisions of Business, Education and Law (which currently comprises more than 40 percent of our students), providing funding for renovations of the Performing Arts Center ($1 million), classroom technology/computer labs ($250,000) and additional classroom space (new building) to meet the increase in students will move the College forward to educate students for life.
Culver-Stockton College has taken the typical 15-week semester and divided it into a 12- week term and a three-week term. During the three-week term, students can choose to take learning out of the classroom and into the world by traveling with their classmates and professors or take one course or internship intensively, allowing for a higher degree of experiential learning. Our commitment to this theory is grounded in the belief that students learn best when they develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting. This energizing curricular feature that faculty and students enthusiastically support helps advance the student experience in many ways.
Culver-Stockton is a student-centered institution with more than 50 student organizations, including student government, service programs, newspaper, library magazine, radio station, television station, mock trial team, musical ensembles, theatre and dance groups and Greek organizations. With outstanding faculty and students eager to grow academically, spiritually and personally, Culver-Stockton College has received numerous accolades in support of their accomplishments.
