ABOUT  THE  COLLEGE

Rust was founded in 1866 in Asbury United Methodist Church in Holly Springs, MS by Rev. A.C. McDonald and Rev.

Since that time, the United Methodist Church has been an integral part of Rust College.

Rust offers academic programs in five areas: Education, Business, Humanities, Social Science, Science, and Mathematics, awarding the A.S., B.A., B.S., B.S.W., Degrees. The College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS),    The University Senate of the United Methodist Church and the Mississippi State Department of Education.
