Intellectual Curiosity: Here you’ll be pushed to put theory to practice—something we call experiential learning. We’ll prepare you for that dream internship, job, or graduate program.

Every student at SCU has the potential to do something extraordinary.

A Santa Clara education gives you more than a degree—it transforms the way you see the world and your place in it. Grounded in ethics and social justice, it empowers you to help find solutions to global problems and effect change in your own community.

You'll take classes from professors who are as dedicated to teaching as they are to their own research and scholarship. You'll learn from experience through community-based coursework, internships, and independent research, all while being immersed in the innovation, energy, and opportunity of Silicon Valley.

We offer more than 50 majors, minors, and special programs for law, medicine, and teaching. Our graduate programs span business, engineering, education, counseling psychology, law, theology, and pastoral ministries.

  • Taste for Yourself

    Taste for yourself what flavors Cuban food on the island. Listen to stories from the street. Walk the rows of a farm. You might learn a few things that textbooks and statistics and crafted political messages don't reveal.

  • Walk Across California

    An epic journey whereby one foot is put in front of the other to discover, up close and personal, who and what and where is the Golden State.
