Franciscan University of Steubenville is no ordinary university, and a Franciscan education is no ordinary education.

Your knowledge — illuminated by faith — comes alive and leads you confidently into the world when you study at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Here, your exceptional education is grounded in a passionately Catholic faith tradition that takes you beyond yourself and into the community where you can evangelize and transform the culture.

At Franciscan, we know that God wants you to grow in wisdom and understanding, discovering more about who he is, who you are, and how you’re called to live. We also know that God has called you to serve him in this world in some particular way—as a scientist, economist, teacher, or social worker—and you need to acquire the skills necessary for answering that call.

Our strong core curriculum for undergraduates will root you in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, providing you with a solid liberal arts education and helping you discover the truth about God, man, and the created world.

At the same time, our broad range of majors and specialized programs will allow you to pursue almost any field of study, from chemistry and nursing to psychology, political science, sacred music, engineering, and many, many more.

Online Programming

With a student/faculty ratio of 15:1, you’ll study under world-class scholars who know you by name and care about your success, both as a student and as a person. You’ll also work closely with a faculty advisor who can help you make informed decisions about the courses you take at Franciscan, as well as internships, professional development opportunities, and graduate studies. One of Franciscan’s greatest strengths is the sense of Catholic community it fosters, and that hold true inside Franciscan’s classrooms as much as it does in any other area of University life.
