South Carolina's First Four-Year Church-Related College

Erskine College was founded in 1839 by the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church as South Carolina's first four-year church-related college. The college grew out of an academy for men established in 1835 and seminary founded two years later at Due West.

In 1859 Due West Woman's College was founded and continued for 70 years until it was merged with Erskine in 1929.

Today Erskine's academic excellence as a liberal arts college continues with consistent ranking among the country's best small colleges. The campus, which is dominated by ancient oaks, is a blend of nineteenth and twentieth century architecture. The cultural center of the school is the modern Bowie Arts Center with its permanent and changing galleries.
