Students in the Panuska College of Professional Studies are liberally educated in the Ignatian tradition. Our students in the helping professions are leaders in their field because of their intense study in their major and their liberal education that include the development of general skills and skills in their major. Our students think critically because they have the opportunity to develop both depth and breadth in the major, the cognate, and in the areas of natural science, social/behavioral science, humanities, philosophy, and theology. Within these disciplines students will also take at least two courses that are writing-intensive and two courses with a strong cultural diversity component.
