At Culver-Stockton College, 'Do Something Different' is more than a motto - it's a philosophy we live by, and it all begins with our unique curriculum.

Academics Explained

 Our dynamic approach to education blends the best of liberal arts with experience-based learning. The innovative academic calendar takes the typical 15-week semester and divides it into two terms, a 12-week term and a 3-week term. You can experience opportunities like internships, research, clinical experience and even courses that include travel, domestically and abroad.

A different kind of education

 Prepare yourself for the future by experiencing a wide-range of subject matter. At C-SC, you'll learn how to think, not what to think. This philosophy is the cornerstone of our liberal arts education; it gives students like you the confidence, knowledge and ability needed to become the leaders of the future.

Endless opportunities

Imagine conducting science research in the Egyptian desert, studying arts and literature in Turkey and the British Isles, or learning about business in China. Every semester, 3-week courses are offered that allow students to travel nationally or even study abroad.

Take control of your own educational experience from the beginning. As early as the second semester of your freshmen year, you can participate in internships to check out a career field of interest. You can develop an internship at a company of your choice or select one from more than 700 companies across the United States. The experiences you gain at C-SC will build your résumé and help you get that first professional job or prepare you for graduate school. You can make valuable connections with working professionals and alumni as you develop the skills employers want.

Individualize your major

At C-SC you also have the option of creating your own individualized or interdisciplinary program of study. Combine courses in various disciplines to create a program tailored to your specific talents and interests! Students have found success with individual majors like "jazz studies" and "finance and law." At Culver-Stockton, your education can be exactly what you want it to be.


So what’s in it for you?

Our curriculum revolves around doing, seeing, traveling, interning and practicing.

Use our 12-week term to take courses that are challenging, rewarding and hands-on. Then, during the 3-week term, focus on one course. Passionate about science? Spend three weeks doing research. Want to learn Italian? Immerse yourself in the language and the culture by traveling to Italy. Or do your math skills just need a little extra attention? You can devote three weeks to college algebra. It's your education, and at C-SC you are in control.
