success rate

About 98% of our alumni are employed or earning an advanced degree within six months of graduation.

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 the world.

A professor teaches a class.

That’s why we're 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.

You can help us keep this transformative education thriving. You can make a difference today.

Finding my path

“I’m so grateful to our donors for making my Creighton experience possible. I can’t imagine having picked any other college. I’d be an entirely different person.

“I think of all my great Creighton experiences — working with the Creighton Intercultural Center, taking service trips through the Schlegel Center for Service and Justice. This education shows you how to harness your own gifts. It shapes your path. It gives you a sense of who you are.”
