Experiential learning is at the heart of a Saint Martin’s education. Our curriculum challenges and enriches our students. We cultivate an environment where students explore who they are in the world as they study their chosen field. On-going research opportunities working directly with faculty support classroom learning and provide real-world experience solving real-world problems. As an inclusive community of learners we seek to produce thoughtful, independent thinkers interested in making a positive difference in the world.

"Even though students could go about publication alone, I feel that having a professor to work with and support my goals made a huge difference in both the quality and process of the work."

Research and scholarship

Our faculty craft a curriculum that goes beyond a simple job-focused outcome. The skills you develop in class flourish through leadership roles and participation in research alongside your professors.

Study abroad

In his recent encyclical, Pope Francis reminds us that we are “one world with a common plan.” As a means to this end, we encourage all our students to participate in study abroad. Live and learn in over 20 countries around the globe. North, south, east or west. Which direction will you go?
