"Franciscan University is great university for those seeking an education in a Catholic environment. The campus is safe, beautiful, and only a short drive from Pittsburgh. The Humanities and Catholic Culture degree is by far the most challenging and rewarding degree offered. It is perfect for those wishing to ground themselves in history, philosophy, and logic before going on to graduate studies. I am currently in law school, but I have classmates who work as teachers, architects (went to Notre Dame school of Architecture), financial planners, and political thinkers / writers. I would suggest the Humanities and Catholic Culture degree to anyone, regardless of their religion, because it provides a world view that is cognizant of the history and culture which has shaped our modern world."

  • Degree: Theology
"I greatly value the education that I received at Franciscan University of Steubenville. The theology department is full of knowledgeable professors who apply not only their minds but their entire lives to God, the subject of their study. I think that this is the most unique trait of the academics at Franciscan University, and in my opinion, this integration of mind and action is indispensable for anyone trying to learn and understand the depths of the Catholic faith."

"I am currently in this program now, and loving it! I have learned so much about business on a higher level, and have been able to apply it to my own startup business. I have learned a lot about text book knowledge and how to apply it in daily life. It has been a great program, and I would highly recommend!"

"This school is unlike any other. The community is welcoming, warm and calls you on to be the best person you can be. It encourages the development of mind, body, and soul through truth, beauty and goodness. It is a smaller school, with a lot of character. The teacher to student ratio is very low 1:15. The largest programs are Theology, Philosophy, Nursing and Education. The Humanities and Catholic Culture major is a hidden gem of the school. I do not regret coming here, it has given me a strong foundation stone to which I can build the rest of my life thanks to many great role models and mentors."

"I always wanted to go to Franciscan University and was very happy there. I found student life very welcoming and my classes challenging and rewarding. They also have some very good study abroad programs. It's also a traditional Catholic environment, which may not be for everyone, but if that's something you're looking for then it's a big plus. Academic advising felt lacking. It was something I had to do pretty much on my own, because my advisor was a professor with lots of other things to do and he seemed to understand my course requirements even less than I did. You are living in a bubble up there, and it's not for everyone. The surrounding neighborhoods can also be unsafe. Overall, however, for academic matters and student life, I give it ten out of ten."

  • Degree: Counseling
"For the grad counseling program, the class sizes are less than 30 students and all the classes are on the same floor as the professor's offices. The professors are easy to talk to and willing to help. There is a great Catholic atmosphere at Franciscan University and throughout our classes. We are about a 40 minute drive away from Pittsburgh. Overall, I really enjoy the program."
