Academics

Tougaloo College is where “history meets the future.” Here, students embrace the school’s incredible 150-year traditions and commitment to social justice along with its first-rate education. Tougaloo College’s goal is to prepare students to become leaders in education, the humanities, natural sciences, and the social sciences. In fact, 40% of African American physicians and dentists in the state of Mississippi have graduated from Tougaloo, while more than 33% of the state’s Black attorneys and educators/school administrators have also received their degrees from the college.

One of Tougaloo’s marquee programs is the Jackson Heart Study (JHS); a collaborative effort between Tougaloo College, Jackson State University, the Mississippi State Department of Health, and the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Tougaloo College also serves as the Undergraduate Training and Education Center (UTEC), preparing students for careers in the biomedical and health sciences by giving them opportunities to conduct research and participate in hands-on training under the mentorship of experienced researchers.

In recent years, Tougaloo has created additional targeted programs like the Center for International Studies and Global Change, offering a range of study abroad programs as well as a campus-wide atmosphere of inclusivity and respect for the many cultures that make up the student body. Another newer initiative is the Tougaloo Council for Undergraduate Research, which emphasizes creating more challenging research opportunities and providing enhanced technology across all departments at the school, as well as fostering regional and national programs.
