Prepared for Life

Saint Mary’s women are prepared. Not just for a career, but for life. Here, you will push your boundaries, veer out of your comfort zone, and open yourself up to unexpected ideas. Along the way, you will gain the confidence, critical thinking skills, and leadership experience necessary to reach your goals and achieve success in all areas of life.

Student at jobsiteSaint Mary’s students know this to be true. In fact, recent graduates are far more likely to be employed full time or in graduate school. Eight in 10 are in a career related to their major with early career wages averaging 34 percent above the norm. They more frequently achieve the highest levels of success in their chosen areas — like law, medicine, entrepreneurship, teaching, business, the sciences, the arts, and more.

That’s because, at Saint Mary’s, you will have a personalized learning experience. One that doesn’t lay out the path for you, but encourages and guides you to chart your own course. You will have mentors in your professors, and in our 8,000-strong alumnae network that comprises women from across the globe and all walks of life.

Saint Mary’s…where you launch your career, and take charge of your life.
