Birmingham Southern College

Birmingham-Southern College is the result of a merger of Southern University, founded in Greensboro, Ala., in 1856, with Birmingham College, opened in 1898 in Birmingham, Ala. These two institutions were consolidated on May 30, 1918, under the name of Birmingham-Southern College.

The most distinctive part of the Birmingham-Southern experience is the Interim Term, a four-week period each January in which students develop their potential for creative activity and independent study by exploring one topic or interest. This intensive program of experiential learning—the middle section of the college's 4-1-4 academic calendar—offers students unique opportunities to be further enriched through on- and off-campus projects, independent study or research, foreign study experiences, and challenging and unusual internships.
