About Saint Mary’s University

Founded as a local college for men by Bishop Patrick R. Heffron in 1912, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is today a global and diverse learning community educating students of every age, race, and nationality. The Lasallian Catholic university has been offering on-campus graduate programs since the 1970s and expanded in the mid 1980s to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse adult population, much of which required evening and weekend classes to accommodate full-time work schedules.

"There is a belief here, and it courses through our entire community, the belief that everyone has the chance to make a difference in the world."

Fulfilling its commitment to accessibility and innovation, the university today offers graduate-level courses on the ground and in blended formats at numerous on- and off-campus locations, as well as entirely online to meet the needs of today’s professional population. The Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs, one of the largest graduate schools in Minnesota, offers online graduate-level courses designed for working adults seeking an affordable, convenient, and practitioner-based education.

Saint Mary's University of Minnesota is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission1,

Saint Mary’s University is also a noted “College of Distinction” for its excellence in key areas of educational quality. Saint Mary’s is also proud to be among U.S. News & World Report’s list of “Best National Universities," Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Colleges,” the Princeton Review’s list of “Best Midwestern Colleges.”
