Center for Graduate Studies of Columbia

Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Center for Graduate Studies of Columbia, South Carolina opened its doors to students and faculty in the fall of 2014. The Center’s opening brought LRU’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program to a third location and added an additional fully online Human Services program to the list of graduate degree options. In 2016, a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy was also added. All programs are service oriented and consistent with the University’s mission of providing a Christ-centered, caring community. The Center shares a campus with the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, and is located in the garden level of Beam Hall, which received a major renovation prior to opening.
