Academics

In Pursuit of Knowledge

Our spirit ignites a boundless curiosity that drives us to bravely face the unknown, engage in exploration and make new discoveries. Here, we examine the relationship between faith and reason. We integrate knowledge across disciplines, and we educate for service, justice and peace.

Across all of our more than 80 undergraduate and 50 graduate and doctoral programs, our academics are challenging. Not just for the sake of it, but because there are real challenges in the world that need to be met. That way, when graduation arrives, you won't be entering the real world for the first time. You'll already be part of it, fully prepared for your career — and for life.
