Saint Mary’s undergraduate liberal arts education empowers women to explore, lead, take intellectual risks, and prepare to change the world. Its graduate programs elevate women and men alike to a higher plane of involvement in select professional programs.


The College
Located in Notre Dame, Indiana, just north of South Bend and across the street from the University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College is sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Cross, who founded the College in 1844.  Traditionally a women’s college, Saint Mary’s began admitting men into its graduate programs in 2015.

The campus
Our suburban campus includes 100 acres of trees, gardens, and manicured lawns, historic buildings, and technologically advanced classrooms beside the Saint Joseph River. Across the street, the University of Notre Dame expands the opportunities for Saint Mary’s students, who can attend Notre Dame classes and sporting events, and participate in sports, clubs, and organizations at Notre Dame. Faculty may also avail themselves of the library resources of the university and other area colleges.

The students
There are approximately 1,500 undergraduate students who come from 42 states and 17 other countries. Approximately 90 percent of undergraduate students live on campus and are guaranteed housing all four years. Two graduate programs are offered in a hybrid delivery mode, with most course work online and periodic campus visits, while the other two graduate programs are offered on campus.

The education
We have six nationally accredited programs and more than 30 majors to help you pursue a meaningful career and make a difference in the world. Saint Mary's also has four graduate programs.

The faculty
Our faculty consists of top scholars who are recognized for excellence in their fields of study. All of our classes are taught by faculty, not teaching assistants. All students enjoy close working relationships with professors in classes averaging 15 students and a student/faculty ratio of 10:1.

Hands-on learning
Approximately 50 percent of 2019 undergraduates studied abroad in Australia, Austria, France, India, Ireland, Italy, South Africa, Spain, and other countries. Our focus on hands-on learning takes students into the field for course work and professional internships, available through numerous sources. Our commitment to service is demonstrated by student involvement. Roughly two-thirds of Saint Mary’s seniors volunteer annually.

Student life
Students lead more than 60 organizations on campus, including campus publications, fine arts clubs, community service groups, and social and professional organizations. Students are empowered to make key decisions regarding Saint Mary’s social, education, spiritual, and service opportunities through the Student Government Association.

We have eight NCAA Division III varsity athletic teams and a wide range of club and intramural sports available to Saint Mary’s students through both Saint Mary’s College and the University of Notre Dame.

Fifty percent of Saint Mary’s recent alumnae have careers in business and industry, education, and health/medical services. Thirty percent attend graduate or professional school immediately upon graduation.
