Excel in a challenging, supportive academic environment
Forget what you think you know about college. At St. Catharine, you are set up for success from day one. We offer a wide range of bachelor degree options including everything from criminal justice and marketing to psychology, fine arts and health sciences, and we’re adding more majors each year. There are also opportunities to study abroad in locations as far flung as Germany, France, England and Austria.
What you gain at St. Catharine College goes beyond your coursework. Because of our roots in the Catholic Dominican tradition, our campus and classes also build character and stewardship. You’ll come to St. Catharine a good person. You’ll graduate a better one, ready to make a positive difference in our world.
You’ll receive lots of personal attention from your professors in classes that are capped at 28 students (and as low as 15 in some health science classes). The average student to professor ratio is a highly favorable 12:1. The results? Our graduates are setting records in passage of their nursing exams, finding jobs before they graduate and moving on to some of the most prestigious graduate programs in the country.
You’ll love the unique focus your professors bring to their classes as well. There’s:
- Professor Brookfield, who includes hands-on artistic participation in every course, even art history;
- Professor Branstetter, whose humanities classes go beyond the traditional Christian to explore diverse beliefs and cultures in innovative, experiential ways;
- Professor Akin, whose literature course brings original ghost stories alive through candlelight readings.
The list goes on and on. Every course is an immersion in learning that is unlike anything you’ve experienced — it’s uniquely St. Catharine College and you’ll like the difference right away.
