Academics

A Quality Education in the Jesuit Tradition.

Student Studying

We set our students up for success by providing an education that lasts a lifetime. You’ll find courses that fascinate you, faculty members who challenge and support you, and friendships you’ll treasure long after graduation.

Expand your horizons through our flexible curriculum and dive into what matters to you most. Learn how to express yourself as a leader as well as think critically and deeply. Seize opportunities to roll up your sleeves and live what you learn, hands-on, in the real world. See our programs for yourself:

Everything we do is inspired by the Jesuit religious order, founded by St. Ignatius over more than 470 years ago. Our education is guided by principles of ethical living, service to others, the search for truth and a passion for justice. That's why you will see members of the Jesuit community as your instructors, pastors, chaplains and university administration and staff.

A Course Catalog as Big as Your Dreams — a Classroom as Big as the World

With nine schools and colleges, we offer more than 100 academic programs, degrees and majors to accommodate and develop your passions. From Chemistry to social work, musical theater to business, Creighton empowers you to excel and make a difference.

Interested in the health sciences? Creighton’s EDGE provides world class pre-med and pre-dental support. Have a passion for law? We offer pre-law courses, too. No other school has the breadth of offerings Creighton does.

We also encourage our Bluejays to leave the nest for a semester or two and see the world, to live, learn, and serve. That’s why we give hundreds of students the opportunity to study abroad, from the Dominican Republic to Scotland and China, every year.

Whatever you choose to study, the Creighton experience adds up to this: a meaningful change in how you think about yourself and the world. 

Creighton gives you an advantage outside the classroom thanks to Creighton EDGE, our academic and career advising resource. At Creighton, you’re guaranteed one-on-one advising to ensure your success here and wherever your passions lead.

A Caring Community Founded on Excellence

Creighton students learn by example from our world-class faculty members. Their top priority is your intellectual and personal growth, which is why so many of them have been awarded Professor of the Year. Some students have coffee with their professors, even after the semester is over. Our faculty goes above and beyond to provide you with personalized instruction, working side-by-side with you in conducting research. Plus, their doors are always open.

You’ll also learn from your classmates. You’ll collaborate, live together, study together and serve together. You’ll sit next to and strike up conversations with the doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and leaders of tomorrow. Student life is never dull on our campus.
