The College will focus its integrative teaching in the core subjects of Composition, English Language and Literature, Foreign Language, U.S. Government and History, Economics, Mathematics, and the Sciences in addition to instruction in degree major-specific requirements. Applications will be accepted beginning July 2010, for the semester beginning August 2011.

The College emphasizes teaching and research—with relevance to the practical world and Christian witness as guiding principles: Inquiry Seeking Wisdom. College programs will encompass several academic disciplines and degree-granting programs, as well as interdisciplinary collaborations, laboratories, and programs whose work cuts across traditional departmental boundaries. These aims are realized in a singularly collegial, interdisciplinary atmosphere, while educating outstanding students to become creative members of society. Saint Katherine College is independent, coeducational, and privately endowed and admits students of all religious and faith backgrounds.

Saint Katherine College offers degree programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in Art, Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Economics, English Language and Literature, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Music, Philosophy, Public Policy, and Theology.

The publications of the Press are the Saint Katherine Review and books and other materials that further scholarly investigation, advance interdisciplinary inquiry dialogue, stimulate public debate, educate both within and outside the classroom, and enhance cultural life. The Press is committed to increasing the range and vigor of intellectual pursuits within the College and the community at large.
