University of San Carlos (USC) is a private educational and research institution established in 1783 as the Colegio Seminario de San Carlos. In 1852, the Colegio was entrusted to the Dominican Fathers until the Vincentian Fathers took over in 1867. Since then, the institution opened its college education to all its male students.
After the split of the Colegio from the seminary in 1930, the Society of the Divine Word (Societas Verbi Divini, SVD) took over and has been administering the school since 1935. Following brief periods of closure during World War II, the school gained its university status in 1948. To date, the school is considered to be one of the biggest and most prominent university in Cebu and the Visayas and is composed of 5 campuses in different areas of Metro Cebu.
USC has seven schools catering to 57 undergraduate and 74 graduate programs that focus on Architecture, Fine Arts and Design, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business and Economics, Education, Engineering, Healthcare Professions, and Law and Governance.
