Charleston Colleges and Universities

Charleston is the largest city West Virginia, not to mention its capital. Charleston colleges and universities produce graduates who wish to work for the municipal power and water companies based here, or in the newspaper or banking industry. Like much of West Virginia, Charleston has a rich history of Civil War activity, but has prospered in modern times. Healthcare, arts and culture, theater, museums, shopping, and annual festivities celebrating music and dance make Charleston special.

Charleston colleges and universities include branches of West Virginia University and Marshall University. Although students must travel to other campuses of these Charleston colleges and universities for undergraduate work, they can complete medical and dental residencies through West Virginia University, and graduate studies at Marshall University Graduate College here in Charleston. Online and distance education opportunities also abound in Charleston.
