Company Description

St. Mary's University, founded in 1852 by Marianist brothers and priests, is the first institution of higher learning in San Antonio and the oldest Catholic university in Texas and the Southwest. Personal attention and powerful academic programs have made St. Mary's, located on 135 acres northwest of downtown San Antonio, a nationally recognized liberal arts institution. With a diverse student population of nearly 4,000 of all faiths and backgrounds, St. Mary's is home to five schools: Humanities and Social Sciences, Bill Greehey School of Business, Science, Engineering and Technology, Graduate, and Law. The University provides a Catholic education experience that evokes academic excellence while integrating liberal studies, professional preparation and ethical commitment. St. Mary's 192 full-time faculty members, 94 percent of whom hold doctoral or terminal degrees in their fields, are committed to student success in and out of the classroom. St. Mary's has approximately 70 undergraduate and graduate majors and offers over 120 degree programs, which include 2 doctoral and 2 law programs, and 12 undergraduate and 10 graduate joint programs. The student/faculty ratio of 13-to-1 permits small classes and promotes active learning. St. Mary's University, as a Catholic Marianist University, fosters the formation of people in faith and educates leaders for the common good through community, integrated liberal arts and professional education, and academic excellence. Whether graduates aspire to run for office or apply for medical school, many find success in their chosen endeavors. Historically, more than 50 percent of St. Mary's graduates who apply are admitted to medical and dental schools, exceeding the national average of 35 percent. Nearly 300 alumni have been elected to public office in America, and our long and proud history with the U.S. Armed Forces ROTC program remains firm as more than 20 of our alumni have attained flag rank. Numerous alumni have volunteered to help the community of man through the Peace Corps, and several dozen graduates have gone on to diplomatic careers in the U.S. Foreign Service.
