The Creighton Experience
Creighton University is a top-ranked national Jesuit, Catholic university committed to education that provides intellectual challenge and promotes critical thinking while inspiring leadership and service to others. Creighton’s comprehensive undergraduate and professional academics have contributed to our national reputation for educational excellence, drawing students from across the country and around the world.
At Creighton, you’ll find small class sizes, accomplished faculty mentors, plentiful internships, and a 99% success rate, with students employed, attending graduate school, or volunteering within six months of graduation. With more than 8,000 students; 60+ majors in the arts and sciences, business, and nursing; and 45+ graduate and professional programs—including Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant—no other institution offers comparable opportunities for interdisciplinary study within nine colleges and schools on one campus. In addition to the main campus, Creighton delivers a vast array of online programs and is expanding opportunities for medical and health sciences to a new Phoenix campus, which will soon house 900 Medical, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant students.
Creighton is known for its undergraduate research, with 36% of undergraduate students participating in research that results in hundreds of national and international presentations each year. We’re the #1 Catholic university and among the top 25 private institutions producing Goldwater Scholars over the past 15 years. We’ve also been recognized three times for being a top producer of Fulbright Scholars.
Not all learning takes place in the classroom or lab. With four Fortune 500 company headquarters located in Omaha, Creighton Business students find more paid internship opportunities than there are people to fill them. They find life-changing experiences through community service opportunities, contributing over one million hours of service each year, as well as international exposure through many study abroad programs and Global Scholars, a unique four-year educational program that includes four global experiences.
