As a Catholic and Jesuit institution of nearly 4,000 undergraduates and more than 1,500 graduate students, The University of Scranton delivers a meaningful education that challenges its students morally, spiritually and intellectually.

At Scranton, students, faculty, and staff are challenged by a rich and personal approach to education in the context of a dynamic university that prepares them to be agents of change in the world.

The campus is home to three colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Kania School of Management and the Panuska College of Professional Studies. The University has an engaged alumni community, with over 49,000 living alumni from around the world.



With 66 majors and 44 minors across three colleges, faculty and staff work with students to choose a combination of majors and minors that suit them as individuals. Our graduates are known for their devotion to the welfare of other human beings and by their special commitment to the pursuit of social justice.

The University is one of just 361 colleges in the nation that earned the 2015 Community Engagement Classification designated by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, which recognizes Scranton for success in curricular engagement and outreach partnerships.

We offer students a transformative education, grounded in the liberal arts and made practical by real-world, hands-on learning opportunities. With a rich tradition of academic excellence, our programs are taught in small classes and led by faculty who are experts in their fields. Every aspect of a Scranton education exists to help our students succeed. Scholars are challenged here, and supported.
