Flagler College is a private four-year college located in St. Augustine, Florida. With an enrollment of about 2,500 students and a satellite campus in Tallahassee, Flagler College holds as its mission a commitment to educating and preparing students for productive careers, graduate and professional studies and informed, responsible citizenship.
To this end, Flagler is proud to be an active participant in the Pulitzer Center’s Campus Consortium. Because Flagler College emphasizes intellectual and personal growth as well as teaching and scholarship, it will use the synergies of the Pulitzer Center partnership to enhance opportunities for its students to engage in important world affairs. The College seeks to connect students with interdisciplinary initiatives that create real solutions to the challenges facing our world; the Campus Consortium partnership is an exciting application of this goal.
Flagler College offers a liberal arts and pre-professional curriculum and promotes high-impact learning experiences, including co-curricular opportunities, which foster the development of well-rounded students. Flagler College offers 32 majors, 44 minors and two pre-professional programs. Its Communication Department houses programs in journalism, media studies, media production, film production, strategic communication and women’s studies.
U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review regularly feature Flagler as a college that offers quality education at a relatively low cost. A Flagler education is less than half the cost of similar private colleges, and competitive with many state universities. A relatively young institution (founded in 1968), Flagler College is also noted for its historic beauty. The centerpiece of the campus is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a National Historic Landmark built in 1888 by railroad pioneer and Standard Oil co-founder Henry M. Flagler.
