From Erskine College

Erskine College has been preparing students for lives of learning, service, and leadership for more than 180 years. As a Christian liberal arts college, we educate students for careers, but more importantly, we prepare them for their life’s calling.   

  

With 19 majors and 25 minors, our faculty help students customize a course of study that suits their personal and career goals. Class sizes are small, so professors know their students and seek to build mentoring relationships with them. Faith and learning are integrated in the classroom at Erskine, and we make the spiritual growth and development of our students a priority.

Erskine offers 24 sports and competes dually in Division II of the NCAA as a member of Conference Carolinas, and as a member of the National Christian College Athletics Association (NCCAA). We are committed to the growth of our student-athletes, who are competitive in the classroom as well as on the field of play.
