Jacksonville State University offers an ideal environment for scholars of all ethnic backgrounds who want to live and work in a friendly, small-town surrounding where academic excellence is appreciated and encouraged. The main campus is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Alabama midway between Birmingham and Atlanta. A blend of modern and old, Jacksonville is a charming Southern village that is rich in history, dotted with nationally registered antebellum homes, and other historic sites nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Appalachian mountains.
From our very beginning in 1883 as a state teacher’s college, the focus at JSU has been on education. JSU has developed a rich history of providing a quality education in 46 diverse fields of study.
