    School Overview

    Initially an all-male, all-white military school, Clemson Agricultural College opened in July 1893 with 446 students. Clemson became a coeducational, civilian institution in 1955 and was the first traditionally white institution in South Carolina to desegregate since Reconstruction. With academic offerings and research pursuits, the institution became Clemson University in 1964. Since 1889, Clemson University has built a proud heritage of attracting intelligent, competitive students and helping each one reach his or her full potential.

    Academic programs lay the groundwork for innovative research at this South Carolina university with more than 80 undergraduate majors and 110 graduate degree programs. In addition to offering many individual courses online, Clemson’s graduate school offers several master’s degrees in an online format.
