Located in Columbia, South Carolina, Benedict College is an inclusive, family-oriented institution that provides a transformative learning environment to a diverse student population of around 1,700 students. Three schools house 25 undergraduate degree programs, including majors in many in-demand areas of study such as STEM, Cyber Security, Mass Communication, Computer Science, and Education. Through individualized coursework and general education requirements, students are prepared to enter the world as global citizens, and all can avail themselves of the Benjamin F. Payton Learning Resources Center (the school’s library center). All first-year students are enrolled in The College Experience, a course that teaches them how to make the most of campus resources such as drop-in tutoring, workshops, and technology support videos. All sophomores also complete a Professional Pathways course, which exposes them to career options and professional development. The Office of Extended Learning Services offers non-traditional students and adult learners the opportunity to obtain a degree through nighttime and weekend classes, and the Veterans Resource Center helps active and retired military with all of their educational needs.
