    School Overview

    The history of Bethune-Cookman University begins in 1904, when Mary McLeod Bethune founded the Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School for Negro Girls, and enrolled its first five young girls. As the school evolved, it became a co-educational high school, formed ties to the United Methodist Church, transitioned once more to a junior college and then introduced bachelor’s programs in the 1940s. By 2006, the school initiated a graduate program and one-year later assumed University status. Today, the four-year private, not-for-profit institution retains affiliations with the United Methodist Church, and enrolls a predominantly African-American student demographic. 

    Bethune-Cookman University awards bachelor’s degrees and master's degrees. Furthermore, the School of Professional Studies works to facilitate the educational goals of non-traditional students, including adults and working professionals. In an effort to integrate technology into the educational environment, the Office of Instructional Technology at Bethune-Cookman supports online graduate and professional studies. Online coursework reflects identical standards to that of on-campus counterparts, and a student orientation for online learning provides additional information and aids readiness.
