Liberal Arts at Its Core

Jesuit education has always been rooted in the liberal arts. It’s our tradition. It’s our strength. Now, it’s our way forward. 

A foundation in the liberal arts has never been more essential. The humanities are an ideal training ground for our students to achieve personal and professional growth before they set forth in a rapidly changing world. 

We are dedicating new efforts for collaboration across disciplines — such as the Kingfisher Institute for the Liberal Arts and Professions — and exploring new forms of interprofessional education across all schools and colleges. 

As Creighton alumni know, we teach our students not just the material of their chosen degree but something far more foundational: How to think more completely

Through a College of Arts and Sciences education, our students achieve a deeper insight, gaining a more profound sense of themselves and the world around them. 

That quality of thought doesn’t expire at commencement. It sticks with our graduates the rest of their lives.

Support That Changes Lives

“My family and I are so grateful for your generosity. It's changed our lives. It really makes me happy to know that there are people out there supporting students like me. Creighton alumni really care about the school and what it did for them. Now, for them to pay it back for our generation is really amazing.”
