Catholic Profile


You’re More Than a Student, and Creighton is More Than a University.


At Creighton you will find an unprecedented breadth and depth of academic programming. The solid liberal arts core that equips you with the skills to build a meaningful life. And the strong foundation in the Jesuit tradition of magis, or “more,” that guides everything we do.

 

The Creighton EDGE®
The Creighton EDGE® Program is designed to provide you with a holistic approach to academic advising, the pursuit of advanced studies in grad-uate/professional school, and career planning. The EDGE® brings together academic support, career counseling, and hands-on experiences to help 

shape your future.

 

Connecting you to your future
We offer a broad range of academic opportunities to earn prestigious undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees, all on one campus. You’ll even have opportunities to earn multiple degrees in less time than normal through such programs as our 3-3 pre-law that allows students to earn undergraduate and law degrees in six years. With more than 60 majors in our Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Nursing, plus Creighton’s Graduate School and prestigious professional programs in medicine, dentistry, law, pharmacy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy, the bridges to your future are limitless.

Academic excellence in a
supportive environment

Our freshman academic profile places Creighton among the top 10 private universities in the Midwest and among the top 10 national Catholic universities with at least 4,000

Creighton undergraduates have exceptional opportunities to work side by side with faculty—not graduate assistants—on research projects, as well as the chance to present their work at national conferences.
