Allen University, nestled in the historic Waverly district of downtown Columbia, South Carolina, is a long-standing pillar of the community. As the #2 HCBU in South Carolina and #22 of HBCUs across the United States by 2020 College Census rankings of Best HBCUs, Allen University is the gateway to "All That Can Be Imagined."
The University launched two fully online programs in the fall of 2020. The Allen University Online academic tracks include a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and a Bachelor of Arts in Human Service. The two online degrees program adds to the University's catalog of nine traditional undergraduate degree programs and one traditional master's program. The online program is ideal for adult learners but open to all students looking to pursue a degree in the offered area. While the new programs are exciting, students continue to excel in existing programs, including Dickerson Green Seminary Master of Divinity program that equips graduates to engage in Cristian congregational lofe and other settings in which the expectation is to think theologically and minister to the spiritual, social and physical development of all people within a Cristian spiritual context.
