Catholic Profile


A Catholic University in Greater Boston

close-knit community, personalized academic support, championship-winning teams, and an institutional commitment to service give Regis students plenty of opportunities to make an impact on campus, in Boston, and around the globe. 

Regis is a private co-ed university that offers an array of innovative, in-demand degree programs in communication, business, nursing, biomedical engineering, health professions, education, and more. Located just 12 miles from Boston, Regis offers dynamic opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students. 

During his time at Regis, Public Health major Matt Norton took advantage of every opportunity available—serving as president of the Student Government Association, admission office ambassador, campus tour guide, student-athlete for the Regis Pride cross-country team, and an orientation leader. One of his professors helped him secure an internship that led to a full-time job after graduation. 

“This was such a great place for me because I got to be involved in so many things,” says Matt, who is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Regulatory and Clinical Research Management at Regis. “I don’t think I’d ever get to do so much at a larger institution.”  

Hands-on experience
Regis offers students the perfect balance of a suburban campus with city connections. Located in Weston, Massachusetts, students enjoy being part of a close-knit campus community, with internship opportunities only miles away in Boston, the largest city in New England. 

Nursing major Justine Murphy’s Regis experience included clinicals with maternity and pediatric patients at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, two of the top hospitals in the country. She credited the Nursing program at Regis for its excellent placement opportunities and strong connections to major hospitals. She also served as an RA to first-year students, participated in international service trips, and studied abroad during the summer in Ireland. 

Involvement in the Student Government Association is what helped Communication major Fred Mathieu secure an internship with a public relations firm in Boston. Through his internship, Fred has gained public relations experience by drafting press releases and communicating with local news stations: “I am truly looking forward to starting my career with the knowledge and experience I have received from my internship.”

Academic and financial support 
Biology and Psychology major Christian Thomas has dreams of attending medical school after Regis. Christian states the professors at Regis have been instrumental in providing him with career guidance and internship opportunities. When asked to name his favorite professor, Christian struggles to pick just one. 

“That’s a tough question because it changes year-to-year. All of my professors have helped me so much,” Christian says. “And that includes giving guidance outside the classroom. It’s definitely tough to narrow it down to one person.” 

Like many students, Christian receives financial assistance from the University to finance his education. Regis is committed to empowering students through education and to making education affordable. Ninety-five percent of incoming students receive merit scholarship or need-based aid directly from Regis. Christian recognizes the importance this financial support plays. 

“The generous amount of financial aid I received when admitted to Regis proved I was making the right choice. It was a huge relief to my parents that I could receive a good, affordable education.” 

Committed to service 
The Sisters of St. Joseph founded theUniversity in 1927 with a set of core values, including caring for those in need and service learning. 

The annual service trip to Peru epitomizes those values as well as the entire Regis experience. Students map out budgets and plan fundraisers for the Peru trips. They work in teams to manage logistics and practice their language, nursing, and teaching skills. Each night they gather for prayer and reflection about the day’s events and connections they have made. Students travel to Peru to help others and ultimately end up gaining so much from the transformational experience.  

Global perspective
The Peru trip is just one of many ways for students to explore the world around them. Regis has a variety of study abroad options, including faculty-led trips, service learning trips, summer programs, and full-semester programs.

Students work with the Center for Global Connections to find theprogram that fits their personal and professional interests. Students can explore the world by spending a semester abroad in countries like England or Australia, participate in research and service opportunities in places like Peru and Nicaragua, or get involved in the Regis Haiti Project.
