    School Overview

    The University of Charleston was founded in 1888 in Barboursville, West Virginia as Barboursville Seminary, affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal Church South. A substantial gift from a Fayetteville coal operator, Morris Harvey, helped the struggling school eliminate its substantial debt. In gratitude, the school was renamed Morris Harvey College, and embarked on a building and renovation program. After years of growth, the college disaffiliated from the Methodist Church, becoming an independent college in 1942. On December 13, 1978, Morris Harvey College was renamed the University of Charleston. In the last several years, the university has established locations in Beckley and Martinsburg, and developed the opportunity for students to learn online.
