Here, you’ll be able to claim an education in which the talents, aspirations, and contributions of women are not only valued but acknowledged as central to the world’s future.

Find your inner leader
We offer valuable job connections and career advice through our Career Development Center and annual Career Opportunities Fair, the largest among private colleges in Minnesota. St. Kate’s graduates go on to become CEOs, senators, congresswomen, judges, teachers, scientists, doctors, nurses, librarians, writers, social workers, and more. Nearly 93% of St. Kate’s students are working full-time or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation. Employers say our graduates are strong critical thinkers, persuasive communicators, and leaders in their careers.
Join a dynamic campus
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet founded St. Catherine University more than 100 years ago—and our focus on integrating the liberal arts and professional education within the Catholic intellectual tradition, emphasizing scholarly inquiry and social justice teaching, remains strong. St. Kate's students know how to think critically about our world and how they can have a positive impact on it by learning about social justice issues and gaining leadership skills that allow them to have lives and professions filled with meaning.
St. Kate’s is where natural beauty meets accessibility. Just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Minneapolis–St. Paul, our campus is nestled in St. Paul’s vibrant, walkable Highland Park neighborhood.
