“Chaminade doesn’t see education as just courses and requirements, but as an opportunity to inspire students to change the world.”
Michael, Class of 2017, Accounting
Looking for a university where you can be you? You’ll find it at Chaminade. We’ve got world-class academics but small classroom sizes, a vibrant campus life and a host of signature programs that offer one-of-a-kind experiences. We’re also big on helping students seek out ways to make a difference in the world. That’s because we believe education isn’t just about learning, but about social justice, building community, and preparing tomorrow’s ethical leaders for an ever-changing planet.
Chaminade prides itself on being a small, focused institution. But its educational offerings — and its service-oriented mission — are anything but tiny. In fact, our students can choose from a buffet of educational offerings. The best part: we make it easy for transfer students to make the switch. Our advisors are ready to help you review your credits, map out your academic journey and find the hands-on campus programs that match your passions.
You’re ready to take the next step in your career. That’s why we’re here. At Chaminade, we offer an exciting suite of world-class graduate programs, all of which feature engaging curricula taught by professors who are leaders in their fields. We also work hard to build our programs to meet the scheduling demands of all types of graduate learners, including busy professionals.
Who says you can’t attend class from your living room, listen to that lecture in your PJs or join a class discussion after putting the kids to bed? Online degrees at Chaminade have all the academic rigor of our daytime programs but are designed to be a custom fit — built around your schedule. And to set students up for success, we offer a host of academic advising opportunities to our online degree-seekers along with vibrant faculty mentorships.
You serve every day. Let us turn the tables. At Chaminade, we work hard to meet the unique needs of our military community — members of the armed forces and their families. That’s why we offer academic advising and other supports to make sure you can reach your goals, whether you’re starting a degree, looking to finish it, or interested in taking courses to broaden your skills.
Earn a professional certificate. Become an expert on a subject. Or master a new skill (or two). At Chaminade, you can embrace your drive to always keep learning — and join others who are doing the same. We offer a wide range of day and evening courses for non-degree seeking students, and we’re always adding to the list.
