Learn more about the Class of 2022

The College of Arts and Sciences fosters a learning community committed to addressing the fundamental problems of society with a spirit of inquiry, mutual respect, and intellectual excitement. We strive to prepare students to understand and appreciate a broad range of peoples and cultures so they may exercise moral leadership in a pluralistic world.


Degree programs in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences are offered to undergraduate students, as well as a Master's degree in Pastoral Ministries for graduate students.


In today’s world full of complex challenges, it is imperative to develop leaders that are adaptable and flexible enough to face these challenges. Students must examine how their own passions can help create solutions to the problems society faces. By fostering their curiosity, we can help achieve positive transformations, both for our students and our society. What are you curious about?

Pastoral Ministries

The Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries offers three emphases—Youth and Young Adult Ministries, Latina/o Ministries, and Restorative Justice and Chaplaincy—along with the general Masters in Arts degree with no emphasis and the Diaconate Education program. A Graduate Certificate in Restorative Justice and Chaplaincy as part of the Catholic Restorative Justice Network is also offered.
