Assumption University, a Catholic institution sponsored by the Augustinians of the Assumption and rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, strives to form graduates known for critical intelligence, thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service. We pursue these ambitious goals through a curriculum grounded in the liberal arts and extending to the domain of professional studies. Enlivened by the Catholic affirmation of the harmony of faith and reason, we aim, by the pursuit of the truth, to transform the minds and hearts of students. Assumption favors diversity and ecumenically welcomes all who share its goals.
An Education Built on Solid Reason and Faith
Your Assumption University education will prepare you to compete for the best jobs and career tracks, but there's more to it than that - you will be instilled with something far more lasting and life-changing than simple professional training.
You'll develop habits and skills of good judgment - and develop the confidence that you can hold and defend a sound argument based upon your own comprehension, examination and evaluation of facts and context.
In other words, you'll grow comfortable making sense of a world increasingly filled with ambiguity, distortions and diverse points of view.
As you grow as a student and as a professional, you will benefit from 2,000 years of the Catholic intellectual tradition and explore the teachings of scientists, artists, writers and philosophers who have engaged in a search for truth across all time and all disciplines.
