Erskine College has been equipping young people to flourish in lives of learning, serving, and leading for nearly 175 years. Our rich heritage of thoughtful scholarship, spiritual devotion, and intentional community provides an academic experience that’s as distinctive as our students, faculty, and graduates.
Nationally ranked among the best liberal arts colleges by Forbes magazine and US News & World Report, our majors span the arts and sciences spectrum. No matter what you study, you’ll be personally challenged and profoundly inspired. You’ll work hard, think creatively and critically, explore options, and question assumptions across a variety of subjects.
What we learn and how we live are inseparable foundations for an excellent education. Erskine is committed to Christian authenticity that is intentional and pervasive, but never coercive. While we pursue knowledge, we seek grace and wisdom to answer the big questions.
Our small size means some big advantages! You’ll know almost everyone, especially your professors. And they’ll not only know you, they’ll probably know if you’re having a bad day and why.
Due West of what? Not sure. But we do know that from tree-lined green spaces, gardens and gathering spots to stately architecture, comfortable hangouts, and convenient wi-fi, our campus in Due West, South Carolina, is a great place to learn and live.
Living on campus provides incredible opportunities for fellowship and leadership. In a community like this, you can’t fake it. Quality is revealed. Weaknesses are strengthened. Character is refined through meaningful relationships.
Call it a custom-fit college experience. Call it hand- crafted higher education. At Erskine, your unique talents, interests, and contributions really matter. You help shape the experience for others, while they do the same for you.
