Thinkers, learners, leaders.
At the heart of a liberal arts education is a commitment to developing well-rounded, lifelong learners. The liberal arts encompasses majors in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences – but the influence of the USD liberal arts education reaches every academic program we offer.
Business students can receive training in ethics. Nursing students have the opportunity to study communication. Elementary education students earn an endorsement in technology. Our programs go beyond a single field of study, uniquely preparing our graduates to stand out and bring a wealth of transferable skills and perspectives to their careers.
USD students graduate with more than a degree; they leave with an interdisciplinary foundation rooted in curiosity, creativity and leadership that serves them throughout their lives.
