Explore the College

Students choose the College of Charleston because they want all the benefits of a top public university — six different schools, a long list of majors and minors to choose from and affordable tuition — with the personalized attention, small classes and rich faculty interaction of a small, private college.

With a student body comprised of 10,000 undergraduate and 1,500 graduate students, you’ll meet amazing new people every day, but still feel part of a tight-knit community. Together, you’ll participate in more than 180 student clubs and organizations, cheer on Division I Cougar athletic teams and learn with and from each other in small, hands-on classes.

The City of Charleston is the ideal living-learning laboratory for creative thinkers and independent workers. No other city in America has Charleston’s blend of rich history, authentic culture, thriving arts and entertainment scene and picture-postcard beauty.
