It takes more than book smarts to succeed at USF. It’s what you do with your education that counts.
At the University of San Francisco, we inspire you to reach for a higher standard. A USF education is about transforming thought into action — applying what you learn in the classroom to making the world a better place. We provide exceptional, accessible faculty; small classes that intensify the learning experience; and centers and institutes that extend your reach into the world.
All five of USF's schools — the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education, the School of Law, the School of Management, and the School of Nursing and Health Professions — are driven by a dual emphasis on academic rigor and social justice. Education does not happen in a vacuum here: we treat our city and our world as research laboratories, and are constantly attentive to the societal impact of our academic work.
