Erskine College & Theological SEminary - Erskine College & Theological Seminary
Since 1839, Erskine College has served the Christian community as the first four-year denominational college established in South Carolina. Under the motto Scientia cum Moribus Conjuncta (Knowledge Joined with Morals), Erskine College nourishes its students’ intellect, faith, and spirituality. Founded by the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, Erskine College pledges to create an intimate Christ-centered community in which students can receive a liberal arts education from a nationally accredited institution. Focusing on a holistic and transformational education, Erskine College prepares its students for a lifelong commitment to the service of Christ and their communities. Erskine College’s 90-acre campus combines classic architecture with state-of-the-art facilities in a historic environment rich with colonial, Revolutionary War, and Civil War history. Along with Due West, South Carolina, the town in which it is located, Erskine College is on the National Register of Historic Places. Erskine Theological Seminary, intimately connected to Erskine College since its inception, functions as Erskine College’s professional school, where graduate-level students can receive the training they need to serve the Christian church successfully. A school committed to the Reformed Tradition, Erskine Theological Seminary believes in the truth and authority of the Bible and the one, holy, apostolic Church. Guided by these principles, Erskine Theological Seminary provides for the spiritual needs of both its students and the entire Christian community. Students at Erskine Theological Seminary may select a course of study focused on divinity, theology, educational ministry, pastoral ministry, counseling ministry, or practical ministry. Erskine Theological Seminary also offers a Master of Church Music for students who wish to serve their community through inspired song. A member of the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education, Erskine Theological Seminary is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
