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 nearly 40 countries, including our longest-running and most popular program, Gonzaga-in-Florence, Italy.
