Tusculum College Top Questions

What are the academics like at your school?


Tusculum definitely provides an intimate and up-close classroom experience. I got to know most of my professors very well, and they know you, your history, and remember how you did on that last test. The block schedule makes Tusculum unique - in good and bad ways. Coined "The Focus Calendar," all students take one class at a time for 18 days (three and a half weeks) and then you move on to the next class for a total of four classes in a semester. If you choose a tough major, expect a very very rigid and rigorous schedule once you reach upper level classes. The academics are improving, though if you are serious about going to a school with a reputation as being "a tough school," Tusculum may not be for you.
