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.
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.
