At Mississippi College, our mission is your calling.
Our mission at Mississippi College is to foster an educational experience marked by academic excellence and a commitment to the cause of Christ. We strive to not only transform our students intellectually but to help develop the whole person—socially, spiritually, and emotionally—so they can approach the world bolder, better, and wiser, ready to pursue and fulfill their calling.
As the oldest and largest private institution in the state, MC offers an array of academic programs for students, including more than 85 areas of undergraduate study—meaning there’s something for just about everyone here. Plus, with more than 70 chartered student organizations and 17 Division II athletic teams, there’s never a shortage of activity to keep you engaged and energized. MC is large enough to afford you a variety of opportunities to satisfy your interests, passions, and pursuits but small enough that you’ll be more than just a number.
MC also stands apart as one of the region’s most affordable private liberal arts universities. A Mississippi College education costs approximately $15,000 less per year than the average private university in the US, and with a robust scholarship program, students often find their bottom line at MC is equivalent to that of a public institution’s.
For our students, higher education means more than getting a degree. It means finding a family away from home, having Christian values reinforced in all areas, and establishing a foundation upon which you will continue to build for the rest of your life.
