Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts and Education!
Saint Xavier is the first Catholic college in Chicago, and at our University, we educate
students, many of whom are the first in their families to attend college.
I invite you and your family to see yourself in the College of Liberal Arts and Education,
where you can explore majors and minors that educate students for character, competence,
and career success.
Our students pursue internships, which allow them to blend classroom knowledge with
workplace skills, providing them with invaluable experience. Our students also engage
in original research with faculty members, providing them with the opportunity to
present their findings at conferences and build important networking relationships.
Our students also engage in Saint Xavier’s many student organizations and clubs, allowing
them to blend passion projects with leadership opportunities.
Our students have the opportunity to study with faculty members who believe in every
student’s ability to learn. To this end, our faculty members hold regular student
hours, mentor students by assisting them with material from classes and with research
and internship opportunities. They are also active in their scholarly and pedagogical
interests. Our faculty members exemplify the Mercy mission, as they “educate students
to search for truth, to think critically, to communicate effectively and to serve
wisely and compassionately in support of human dignity and the common good.”
If you are interested in Saint Xavier University and the College of Liberal Arts and
Education, I encourage you to explore the many opportunities that await you.
At Saint Xavier University, we place you and your family first.
