Founded in 1794, Tusculum has moved into the 21st century by adding both online and hybrid class structures, for both graduate and undergraduate students. Located in rural Tennessee, this institution provides its small (about 1,800) student body with strong bachelor and master degree programs in business, nursing, science, and education, as well as a wide variety of other majors. Master’s degree program include an MBA, several teaching degrees and a Master of Science in nursing.
Nearly 100 percent of students are registered full time and approximately 35 percent are 25 years of age or older. Tusculum follows the strategy of offering almost all enrollees an institutional grant or scholarship in order to bring down the cost of attending, with 97 percent of all students receiving financial aid..
Students comment that the campus is “absolutely gorgeous” and that no matter your age you will enjoy attending and will be rewarded by a Tusculum education. We think these comments are right on the money and recommend a close look at this rural Tennessee school.
