Birmingham-Southern College’s mission is to prepare men and women for lives of significance. The college fosters intellectual and personal development through excellence in teaching and scholarship and by challenging students to engage their community and the greater world, to examine diverse perspectives, and to live with integrity. A residential, baccalaureate liberal arts institution, Birmingham-Southern honors its Methodist heritage of informed inquiry and meaningful service.

Within its tradition of the liberal arts, BSC is focused on preparing the learned professionals of tomorrow by combining world-class academics with a long history of experiential learning. Every Birmingham-Southern student has the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom in the real world – be it an internship, research, travel, or service-learning project.

The college’s unique January Exploration Term allows additional flexibility for students to find their passions; the Norton Board of Advisors provides a pool of professional mentors and hands-on opportunities in the community; and personalized advising by full-time faculty helps guide them to success. Every student graduates with the ability to communicate effectively, think critically, solve problems creatively, engage in their community, and continue learning for life.
