Academic Programs

Our rigorous, high-quality programs deeply rooted in our Jesuit values and in the principles of the liberal arts experience enable students to communicate effectively across cultures and appreciate cultural diversity, interpret words, images, texts and discourses in their sociocultural/ political context, and identify and analyze problems across cultural and national boundaries. Students are prepared to compete locally and globally for a wide variety of careers in diplomacy, tech, advertising, international relations, international businesses and organizations (IMF, World Bank, WHO, NATO, UN, etc) translation, localization, and more.
