College Profile: St Bonaventure University
Founded in 1858, St. Bonaventure is a Catholic university dedicated to educational excellence in the Franciscan tradition. We are committed to the constant pursuit of distinction in our undergraduate and graduate programs, our innovative liberal arts core and all of our courses of study.
At St. Bonaventure University, we come to know our students on an individual basis and become their mentors. We strive to bring out the best in every individual. As an academic and spiritual community, we endeavor to prepare our students for the challenges they will face in their professional careers as well as in their personal lives. True to our Franciscan heritage, we encourage students to manifest our values through lives of citizenship and service.
We offer more than 50 undergraduate majors and programs, including pre-health dual admissions programs and pre-law early admission, and 20 graduate programs from the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, Journalism/Mass Communication, and Franciscan Studies.
We require all of our students to take 40 percent of their total credits in core liberal arts courses: literature, history, philosophy, classics, art and the fundamental sciences. We offer 43 undergraduate majors, the most popular of which are elementary education, journalism, psychology, accounting, marketing, finance and management.
Our total undergraduate enrollment is 2,000. Our class sizes are small. Virtually all of our freshman class and most of our other undergraduates live on campus. We are a community.
A group of dedicated Franciscan friars live on campus, but our faculty includes lay people of diverse backgrounds. More than 80 percent of our faculty have a Ph.D. or equivalent. We are open to all students, without regard to religion, race, color, creed or economic background. More than 90 percent of our students receive financial aid.
We encourage independent study, critical analysis and original expression. Our graduates will make their way in one world in which a well-educated person knows that a portion of everyone's time, energy and devotion should be directed to those who are less fortunate. This is the spirit that makes St. Bonaventure a special place of learning.
We are proud to be the flagship Franciscan university. We invite you to share our tradition.
St. Bonaventure University is located on 500 acres in southwestern New York state.
