Salve Regina University
Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1947, Salve Regina is a private, coeducational university offering a comprehensive and innovative liberal arts education in the Catholic tradition that fosters the development of each student’s distinct and individual talents.
Salve Regina has one of the most beautiful and unique campuses in the country and encompasses more than 80 acres. Offering what the National Trust for Historic Preservation has described as a “tour of the great architectural works of the Gilded Age,” the campus is set on seven contiguous estates and features 21 structures of historic significance that have been sensitively adapted to meet University needs while also preserving their status as treasures of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the University enrolls more than 2,500 undergraduate and graduate students from across the U.S. and around the world. Salve Regina’s diverse range of academic programs is complemented by community service initiatives, extracurricular activities and a full athletics program featuring varsity, intramural and club sports.
Comprised of three interconnected components – the Core Curriculum, the major and elective courses – Salve Regina’s curriculum reflects the University mission and provides immeasurable opportunities for students to customize their educational journey. By providing breadth of study in the Core Curriculum and depth of study in the major, it seeks to prepare students to become lifelong learners and responsible, contributing citizens of both their local community and the world.
The undergraduate course of study at Salve Regina is designed to further intellectual, social and spiritual growth that will encourage students to seek wisdom and work for a world that is harmonious, just and merciful. The University’s graduate and continuing education programs are tailored to the unique needs of adult students, combining the integration of knowledge and personal values with the development of greater competency in both theory and practice.
