As a private, nonprofit, coeducational liberal arts and sciences college, the college takes pride in its small classes, experienced faculty and quality educational programs. Originally founded as Christian Female College, the college was the first women's college west of the Mississippi River to be chartered by a state legislature. The college changed its name to Columbia College in 1970 when it transitioned from a two-year women's college to a four-year coeducational college. Though Columbia College has retained a covenant with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) since its inception, the college is a nonsectarian school welcoming students of all religious denominations. Through its network of campuses in 36 nationwide locations, the Day Campus and Evening Campus in Columbia, Mo., and the Online Campus, the college serves more than 29,000 students annually. In addition to offering associate and bachelor's degrees, the college also offers master's degrees at the main campus, selected extended campuses and online.
