Think about some of the stories you’ve heard—the ones that drew you in. Maybe you found these stories so appealing because you anticipated that anything could happen. After all, the most exciting part of a story is often what comes next. Now think about your own story. What is next for you? 

Gannon University offers more than 100 undergraduate and graduate programs for you to choose from within its three colleges.

The College of Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences offers a broad range of academic programs to help you reach your goals. The new School of Public Service and Global Affairs lets you apply your passion for travel, politics, history, law, culture, and languages to a purposeful career.

We welcome you to the Forensic Investigation Center to learn from former FBI and ATF agents who take you from crime scene to courtroom. You can work at Gannon’s award-winning radio station, newspaper, or literary magazine. In addition, you can apply to internships at a number of nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, and corporations in Erie’s vibrant downtown area. We also have a vibrant study abroad program and offer travel courses. 

The College of Engineering and Business includes new Cybersecurity and Cyber Engineering programs that will be accompanied by the upcoming launch of the Institute for Health and Cyber Knowledge. Here you’ll learn to fight real-world cybersecurity threats. Learning through experience is a common theme at Gannon. For example, we’ve developed an entrepreneurial space within our Center for Business Ingenuity to help you become a successful business owner with the aid of regional and University experts.

Would you prefer to take your learning beyond campus parameters? The College offers dual-study programs and learning abroad options through partner institutions in Germany.

The College of Health Professions and Sciences prepares you to meet the health care and scientific needs of the community. We blend classroom teaching with hands-on learning opportunities. For example, students can study tropical marine biology in the Bahamas or occupational therapy in Ecuador. Others participate in our student-run pro bono pediatric occupational therapy or adult physical therapy clinics and conduct research alongside faculty in the lab, field, or clinical environment. Many of these students have job offers or graduate program acceptances to choose from before graduation. 

Gannon’s friendly environment is the perfect place to join on-campus activities through our 140+ clubs and organizations in addition to student-run events, movies, concerts, and trips. The Recreation and Wellness Center includes an indoor fieldhouse and running track, swimming pool, basketball courts, golf simulator, and an array of exercise equipment to help you stay active. Off campus, you can explore museums, galleries, theaters, and restaurants—and seven miles of sandy Lake Erie beaches—all located just steps away from Gannon.

Gannon’s culture of faith is where you find acceptance, respect, understanding, and support. Whatever your faith tradition might be, we welcome you on our campus. We come together as one to learn, teach, and serve in our local and global communities.
