About the College

As one of the country’s premier Jesuit Catholic universities, the College of Arts and Sciences pairs a rigorous academic curriculum with an urban, global perspective. The college's vision of success involves both the head and the heart, with outstanding faculty members giving students the skills and compassion to fashion a more just and humane world.

In recent years, our teacher-scholars have garnered unprecedented national recognition: winning national awards, receiving major new grants and prestigious Fulbright scholarships, and premiering in major art venues and film festivals around the globe.

Our students have published their research alongside our faculty, won prizes for their writing, received highly competitive fellowships, and been accepted at top graduate schools. They are also engaged in the community and they are making a difference. From building a library for street children in Zambia, to bridging the digital divide in Peru, to fighting against modern day slavery right here in the U.S., our students are changing the world for the better.

The College of Arts and Sciences offers wide variety of educational options imbued with a mission to provide not only the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as persons and professionals, but also the values and sensitivity necessary to be men and women for others.
