Choose from eight majors while acquiring a liberal arts education that remains steadfastly relevant in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world. Nearly half of our students enhance their education with a professional studies certificate.


Interested in taking courses before committing to a major or program? You can attend evening classes without being in a degree program by taking undergraduate courses in a variety of subjects as a nondegree student.

Education With Conviction

Our Jesuit, Catholic ideals—including the commitment to cura personalis, or care for the whole person—illuminate everything we do. We devote personalized attention to our students, prioritize their distinct needs, and emphasize character formation.

Student Voices

Woods students bring a tremendous variety of life experiences, personal interests, and professional goals to campus. Together with our supportive faculty and staff, they make up our dynamic, welcoming community.
