Why Creighton


Creighton Campus

Making the decision to go back to school is one thing. Deciding where to pursue your education is another. So why choose the College of Professional Studies at Creighton University?

For more than 30 years, we’ve understood the unique challenges facing adult learners like you. We’ve created a supportive learning environment so you can pursue relevant and flexible degrees and certificates that move you forward in your career and in your life. Our recent alumni have a 100 percent success rate, meaning our graduates are employed or studying further within 6 months of graduating.

We’re focused on giving you the best possible Jesuit education you can receive. Creighton has a rich history, dating back to 1878 when five Jesuits, two lay teachers and 120 students began classes here. Now we have more than 8,000 students and are one of just 28 colleges and universities in the country that share a Jesuit history.

The benefits of a Jesuit education will be clear to you from Day 1. Your professors live our Ignatian values, such as “Magis,” which means “more” and is reflected in the way they always strive for excellence.

By imparting their knowledge, expertise and skills while giving of themselves, too, your professors also demonstrate another of our values: “Cura Personalis,” which means “care for the individual person.”

Your Creighton education will challenge and inspire you—not just to change your own life by earning a degree, but to gain an education that will help you make your world a better place, too.
