Academic Programs

We offer Graduate Programs in Education, Business, Leadership, Fine Arts in Creative Writing and in Dance, and Kinesiology. In addition, the College offers teaching and administrative credentials as well as two Bachelor completion programs, one in Leadership & Organizational Studies and another, known as LEAP, designed particularly for current or retired professional dancers.

Saint Mary's graduate and professional students come from all areas of business, education, the arts, industry, and government. Their lives and their communities are enriched through scholarship and service.

Students leave Saint Mary's with more than just a degree. They leave transformed - with real-life experience in their fields, with a network of mentors and colleagues, with a better understanding of themselves; and with the capacity to improve their lives and the lives of others.
