Get to know our Seniors

As a central part of our Jesuit and Catholic University, the College of Arts and Sciences advances fundamental knowledge and addresses the fundamental challenges of society by promoting discovery, deepening knowledge, and fostering artistic expression. Our community of faculty, staff, and students are continuously exploring their fields and engaging in research and scholarship towards this end.


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.



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.
