A Liberal Arts Education

A Saint Mary’s undergraduate education is a liberal arts education. This means that while students focus on a particular major as preparation for future careers, they also study subjects outside of their major area—with the goal of creating well-rounded, critical-thinking, future citizens of our globally interdependent world.

English Language Assistance

Our unique English Language Bridge (ELB) program offers domestic and international students the opportunity to further develop their English proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, vocabulary, and conversation to a level needed for success in a college setting.
