Academic Programs

Getting to the core of the matter.

The academic heart of Gonzaga's liberal arts tradition lies in its University Core Curriculum, which integrates philosophy, theology, mathematics, literature, writing and speaking. A common thread throughout all of these disciplines is the value of the written word — students at Gonzaga carry out extensive writing projects throughout all their courses of study.

Gonzaga offers 75 undergraduate majors and programs, 26 master’s degrees, a Ph.D. in Leadership Studies, a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, and a Juris Doctor through the School of Law. Additionally, undergraduates may participate in several distinctive academic programs. The average undergraduate class size is 23 and the student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1. Gonzaga also offers study abroad programs in over 30 countries, including our longest-running and most popular program, Gonzaga-in-Florence, Italy.
