Introduction to Graduate Academic Catalog

St. Catherine's offers a unique graduate experience that fosters the development of critical thinking, decision making and ethical leadership skills. We provide a professional graduate education that prepares students to become leaders in their fields and enriches their lives. In return, we invite students to give their education and careers their best -- to strive to think analytically, communicate effectively and solve problems creatively.

St. Catherine's offers nine graduate programs for women and men, each of which carries forth the College's commitment to academic excellence, intellectual inquiry and values-based education. Since its founding in 1905 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Catherine's has been consistently recognized for those strengths. In 1936, the College became the first Catholic college for women in the nation. The St. Catherine's community is made up of women and men from a broad range of ages, geographical origins and religious affiliations pursuing certificates and degrees at the associate, baccalaureate, master's and doctoral levels.
