Founded in 1857, Harris-Stowe State University is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Missouri. During most of this period, the emphasis focused on teacher education. However, Senate Bill 153 enacted in 1993 enhanced the mission of Harris-Stowe to include a wider selection of degree opportunities. Founded by the St. Louis Public Schools as a normal school, it was the first public teacher education institution west of the Mississippi River and the twelfth such institution in the United States.

Harris-Stowe State University was called Harris-Stowe State College until it was renamed in August 2005. It has a long tradition of teacher education and is also the only historically black university (HBCU) serving the needs of the metropolitan St. Louis community.


Harris-Stowe State offers over twelve (12) degree programs including: Bachelor of Science in Education, Bachelor of Science in Urban Education, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with specialization areas, Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Tourism Management, Bachelor of Science in Information Systems and Computer Technology with specialization areas.
