About Sacred Heart University

Sacred Heart University was founded in 1963 by the Most Reverend Walter W. Curtis, bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport from 1961 to 1988. It was established to provide the community with a quality liberal arts education for all at a local Catholic university. From its outset, the University bore the mark of innovation. Charting a new direction within American Catholicism, the University was to be led and staffed by lay people, independent and locally oriented, serving the needs of the diocese and of southwestern Connecticut. SHU is the second-largest Catholic university in New England and was the first in America to be led and staffed by lay people. At Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT they believe that inquiry, pursuing knowledge and intelligent reflection – both inside and outside the classroom – create greater opportunities and choices. They challenge you to be fearless in your curiosity and courageous in your service to others. Sacred Heart University, contemporary in spirit and thinking, is rooted in the liberal arts and Catholic intellectual traditions. Their mission is to educate the whole person while preparing students to lead and serve in the world today. As a Catholic university, inspired by the Gospel of love and mercy, Sacred Heart is particularly committed to social justice and encourages its students, faculty and staff to respect the dignity of every person, to promote the common good and to serve others, especially the poor and suffering.

The University consists of five colleges and two schools: College of Arts & Sciences, School of Communication & Media Arts, School of Computing, the AACSB-accredited Jack Welch College of Business, College of Health Professions, College of Nursing, and Isabelle Farrington School of Education. Sacred Heart University offers many exciting programs and opportunities for international students like you, no matter what your home flag looks like. Whether you want to attend school in the U. S. A. for a Bachelor’s degree, a Master’s degree, a Doctorate degree or intensive English language instruction, Sacred Heart University has the academic programs, career-related, fun and rewarding out-of-class opportunities, and the support you need to be a successful student—and help you reach your unique goals. Conveniently located in Fairfield, Connecticut, just 55 miles northeast of New York City, Sacred Heart University's main campus is situated in the center of corporate America and is easily accessible by automobile, bus, train and airplane. The hustle and bustle of big-city life in NYC and Boston is not far from Fairfield, CT – nor is the natural beauty of Connecticut's scenic coastline.
