Creighton University

Creighton University was founded in 1878 as one of the first free Catholic colleges in the United States. From the beginning, the university has been run by the Jesuits. Located on the northwest edge of downtown Omaha, the university's campus covers more than 70 acres.



Creighton offers associate, bachelor, master, first professional and doctorate degree programs. In addition to undergraduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Business Administration, Creighton University operates professional schools in medicine, dentistry, law, nursing, pharmacy, and the allied health professions. It also has the Graduate School and University College, the latter which serves nontraditional students.
