Creighton University was founded in 1878 by the Jesuit order of the Roman Catholic Church in Omaha, Nebraska. It was built upon 450 years of the Jesuit tradition of excellence. This is apparent in the quality and diversity of the academic programs, faculty and students at Creighton. Creighton is an ideal institution for students who know what they would like to study as well as for undecided students. Programs are offered through the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Business Administration and the School of Pharmacy and Allied Health. Students are given the opportunity to become well rounded and to use what they have learned to make ethical and valuable contributions to the world. At Creighton there is something for everyone. Its 93-acre campus is located on the northwest edge of downtown Omaha.
