Henrietta Schmoll School of Health: Emphasizing interprofessional health care education in classroom, laboratory and clinical settings, students work across traditional program boundaries to prepare for real-world work scenarios. Our research-focused, social justice-oriented health care programs have been at the forefront for more than 100 years, and our graduates are consistently in demand with top employers. Programs include nursing, exercise and sports science, health informatics, occupational and physical therapy, physician assistant studies, public health, and more.

School of Business: St. Kate's School of Business students learn how to take action in an ever-changing, connected world. From accounting to apparel design, marketing to management, sales to leadership, our graduate students take their careers to the highest level in leading-edge master's programs in business and leadership.

School of Humanities, Arts and Sciences: Exploring what it means to be thoughtful, imaginative and creative, students are encouraged to think critically, apply theory to practice and develop the communications and cultural skills vital to a 21st century work world.

School of Nursing: Gain the technical skills and experience you need to be successful in an environment that embraces multicultural and social justice perspectives on health and healing. Whether you’re just getting started or continuing your education, St. Kate’s undergraduate and graduate programs offer something for everyone.

I was supported and challenged by my professors and classmates to broaden my thinking and grow as a nursing leader.
