A life-changing, world-changing education

At St. Edward's University, a top liberal arts college, the Holy Cross vision of a transformative education that fosters self-discovery and commitment to a greater good applies across all academic programs — undergraduate, graduate and adult. 

Holy Cross founder Blessed Basil Moreau understood that no amount of knowledge, by itself, can inspire individuals to make a difference. He viewed the heart, spirit and mind as interwoven instruments of change. 

Your St. Edward’s education — a journey of personal and intellectual discovery — reflects Moreau's ideals and approach to learning: challenging and immersive, comprehensive across many subjects, collaborative, dedicated to social justice, and respectful of all.
