Saint Katherine College’s Mission is: To provide a balanced education in the liberal arts and sciences, founded and rooted in the life of the Orthodox Christian Tradition - Inquiry Seeking Wisdom.
Saint Katherine is a nationally-recognized college of liberal arts and sciences that focuses its integrated, interdisciplinary teaching in the core areas of Composition, English Language and Literature, American Government and History, Economics, Business, and the Sciences as part of an innovative approach to general education. Students may complete degree (BA/BS) programs in eleven concentrations, pre-professional studies (health sciences and graduate studies), and PK-12 teacher credentialing preparation. Outstanding teaching and research - with relevance to the practical world and Christian witness as guiding principles - is our primary aim - Inquiry Seeking Wisdom.
The College emphasizes interdisciplinary collaborations, laboratories, and programs whose work cuts across traditional departmental boundaries. We realize these aims in a singularly collegial, interdisciplinary atmosphere, while educating outstanding students to become creative members of society. All students complete a seven-semester integrated, interdisciplinary core, one semester of college algebra/pre-calculus, one semester of introductory statistics and critical problem solving, two semesters of science, one semester of introductory economics, one semester of Orthodox Christian theology and one semester of New Testament. Students also fulfill a foreign language requirement by instruction or examination.
