Saint Mary's University of Minnesota Online

Introduction

Founded as a local college for men by Bishop Patrick R. Heffron in 1912, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is today a global and diverse learning community educating students of every age, race, and nationality. The Lasallian Catholic university has been offering on-campus graduate programs since the 1970s and expanded in the mid 1980s to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse adult population, much of which required evening and weekend classes to accommodate full-time work schedules.

Fulfilling its commitment to accessibility and innovation, the university today offers undergraduate and graduate-level courses on the ground and in blended formats at numerous on- and off-campus locations, as well as entirely online to meet the needs of today’s professional population.
