Bovard College: Our Story –
Faithful. Scholarly. Skillful. Courageous. Ambitious. These five words, inscribed on the base of Tommy Trojan — the iconic statue in the center of campus — are as true of USC today as they were in 1930 when the statue was unveiled. And they exemplify the type of students we attract and the type of education we provide.
You become a member of the Trojan Family for life. You gain a rigorous education — one that builds practical and adaptable skills you can apply anywhere. You build the confidence that leads to bold steps and successful careers. And you tap into a hunger to innovate and lead.
Our Story – and Yours
We help you bridge the gap between aspiration and ability — matching your vision for your future with the knowledge and tools to realize your goals.
Our focus is on creating a new kind of learning experience — one that enables you to access some of the most influential minds in your profession, and engage with them in real time. We assemble knowledgeable, industry-insightful faculty, who are keenly aware of the skills employers are looking for in their new hires and those they promote. They teach the current best thinking in their fields.
Most importantly, they are eager to share their knowledge and experiences with you — through immersive, real-time practice. You’ll be able to apply what you are learning immediately, and you’ll complete the program with the confidence that comes with experience. We’ll also help you demonstrate how prepared you are to those who can advance your career.
Of course there are no free rides on this journey. You have to put in the time and do the work. But that doesn’t mean you have to put your life on pause.
Our tech-savvy, student-centered approach is designed for busy professionals like you — whenever, and wherever, you are ready to take a bold step forward. At home on your laptop? Join the discussion. On the move? Ask your question using your phone. Mentor-to-student, peer-to-peer, our forward-thinking programs are on the go — just like you.
Your network also will expand as mentors become potential references and employers, and classmates become contacts and future colleagues. You will share a bond with all other professionals who proudly proclaim their USC success on their LinkedIn profiles.
Our namesake and inspiration is Emma Bovard, one of the first students to enroll at USC in 1880. An early advocate for equal access to quality educational opportunities, she also exemplified USC’s longstanding commitment to diversity in our student body.
Following Emma’s example, students, faculty and administrators at USC recognize the lifelong benefits of a college education. As such, USC has taken great effort to improve the educational opportunities for young students with financial need through numerous educational outreach programs. One such program, Bovard Scholars, is designed to support exceptionally high-achieving high school students, who have financial need, apply and succeed at the nation’s most selective universities.
USC Bovard College — we provide the skills that build the confidence to achieve what’s next for you.
