You will find many good reasons to do your graduate studies at Franciscan University of Steubenville.

There’s the academic excellence of our eight master’s programs, which are rooted in passionate Catholicism. There’s the vital interaction of faith and reason, which leads to “a greater love for truth” and “a more comprehensive understanding of the meaning of human life” (Pope John Paul II, Ex corde Ecclesiae). There’s the excitement of living in a community of scholars who are faithful to the magisterium and guided by St. Francis’ vision of love for the Catholic Church.

In short, Franciscan University offers a fully Catholic graduate education that can transform your mind and heart while advancing your career and preparing you for your irreplaceable role in the new evangelization.

I pray the Holy Spirit will lead and guide you to all that the Lord has planned for your future, and I look forward to welcoming you into the rich academic and spiritual life that makes Franciscan University a school like no other.

In Christ and St. Francis,
