Here For You, Wherever You Are

Whether we are virtual, hybrid, or in-person, our students and faculty are hard at work engaging in innovative research and creative production. Stay in touch with us on social media to see what our students are up to. If you're a current student, connect with an advisor to navigate your academic plans.

Learn Local, Go Global

Our classrooms within the Edwards College expand into our local community, from collaborative storytelling projects to internships that transition into full-time careers. In your time in the Edwards College, you’ll have access to short- and semester-long travel abroad experiences, as well as our innovative Intercultural Language Learning Center.

Intercultural Language Resource Center

Alongside conversation practice, tutoring, and online resources, the new, grant-funded ILRC serves as a site for cultural events, including film screenings, language clubs, lectures, and discussions.

The Joyner Institute for Gullah & African Diaspora Studies

The Charles Joyner Institute for Gullah and African Diaspora Studies examines the historical migration and scattering of African populations to local geographical areas and the subsequent evolution of blended cultures, specifically Gullah. 

The Athenaeum Press 

Rather than accepting completed manuscripts for publishing, the Press accepts project proposals that will be intensely developed by an interdisciplinary, collaborative group of students and faculty. The Press seeks these proposals from all corners of the community.
