Best HBCUs in Atlanta - which stand out?

Hi all, I’m starting my college search and I’m super interested in the Atlanta scene. Can anyone from Atlanta or someone who's researched this give me the lowdown on which HBCUs in the city are the most reputable or have the best programs? I’m leaning towards a business major, but I’m open to hearing about all strengths. Thanks!

Hi there! Atlanta is a great city with a strong sense of history and numerous higher education options, especially among HBCUs. Among the best known is Morehouse College, which is an all-mens school that has alumni like Martin Luther King Jr. They have particularly strong programs in the humanities and social sciences. Then there's Spelman College, which is an all-womens institution, and it's nationally recognized for its STEM programs among other offerings.

Clark Atlanta University is also well regarded, especially for its business programs. Their School of Business Administration has several accreditations and is known for its strong alumni network, which can be particularly valuable for a business major like yourself. Moreover, all these schools are part of the Atlanta University Center Consortium, which allows students to cross-register for courses at the member institutions, providing a unique and diverse learning experience.

Keep in mind that each school has its own culture and community, which are just as important as academic strength when considering where you might fit best. I suggest visiting the campuses if possible, and talking to current students and faculty to get a feel for each place. Good luck with your search!
