Blue Mountain College
Blue Mountain College was founded in 1873 as a Christian liberal arts college for women. Significant events at the College since its founding include affiliation with the Mississippi Baptist Convention in 1920; the addition of a ministerial program for men in 1956; becoming fully coeducational in 2005; and the addition of graduate study in 2007.
Currently, the College offers a variety of undergraduate liberal arts majors and one graduate program in elementary education.
Blue Mountain College promotes the development of intellectual integrity, academic excellence, social awareness, and Christian character. It attracts students who are committed to scholarship, servant leadership, and service in church and community. Students are guided to reach their God-given potential with leadership of professionals who share the common bond of Christian faith and who are committed to excellence.
Nestled in the hills of Tippah County, Mississippi, the town of Blue Mountain, the college has a beautiful, natural setting. The student-centered campus has a low faculty-student ratio that exhibits a climate of personal attention, respect inclusion and high expectations.
