An Extraordinary Education

Franciscan University is no ordinary university, and the education you’ll receive here is no ordinary education.

At Franciscan, we know that God wants you to grow in wisdom and understanding, discovering more about who he is, who you are, and how you’re called to live. We also know that God has called you to serve him in this world in some particular way—as a scientist, economist, teacher, or social worker—and you need to acquire the skills necessary for answering that call.

A Franciscan University education will help you achieve both.

Our strong core curriculum for undergraduates will root you in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, providing you with a solid liberal arts education and helping you discover the truth about God, man, and the created world.

At the same time, our broad range of majors and specialized programs will allow you to pursue almost any field of study, from chemistry and nursing to psychology, political science, sacred music, engineering, and many, many more.

With a student/faculty ratio of 15:1, you’ll study under world-class scholars who know you by name and care about your success, both as a student and as a person. You’ll also work closely with a faculty advisor who can help you make informed decisions about the courses you take at Franciscan, as well as internships, professional development opportunities, and graduate studies. One of Franciscan’s greatest strengths is the sense of Catholic community it fosters, and that hold true inside Franciscan’s classrooms as much as it does in any other area of University life.

At Franciscan University, faith and reason, knowledge and experience, past and present all meet, giving rise to an education that is as intellectually challenging and spiritually enriching as it is professionally formative. This type of education will stay with you always, transforming every aspect of your life—how you work, how you play, how you pray, and how you love.

To learn more about Franciscan University’s majors and programs, reach out to one of our admissions counselors, or visit our beautiful hilltop campus in Steubenville, Ohio, and discover the Franciscan difference for yourself.
