Henrietta Schmoll School of Health: Emphasizing interprofessional health care education in classroom, laboratory and clinical settings, students work across traditional program boundaries to prepare for real-world work scenarios. Our research-focused, social justice-oriented health care programs have been at the forefront for more than 100 years, and our graduates are consistently in demand with top employers. Graduate programs include master’s and doctoral programs in Health Informatics, Holistic Health Studies, Nutrition and Dietetics, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies, Public Health, and Social Work.

School of Business: St. Kate's School of Business students learn how to take action in an ever-changing, connected world. From accounting to apparel design, marketing to management, sales to leadership, our graduate students take their careers to the highest level in leading-edge master's programs in business (MBA) and Organizational Leadership.

School of Humanities, Arts and Sciences: Through this school, graduate students earn degrees in Library and Information Science or Montessori Education and Leadership.

School of Nursing: Gain the skills and experience you need to be successful in an environment that embraces multicultural and social justice perspectives on health and healing from a leading regional School of Nursing, with a wide range of bachelors (BSN), master’s (MSN), doctoral (DNP) and certificate programs. Programs include BSN and MSN programs to prepare students for entry into the profession as registered nurses, as well as graduate programs to prepare registered nurses for advanced nursing practice, nurse educator and nursing leadership roles.

I was supported and challenged by my professors and classmates to broaden my thinking and grow as a nursing leader.
