USM is an esteemed applied liberal arts Catholic university located in the greater Kansas City metro area.
Saint Mary offers more than 30 undergraduate programs--including multiple STEM programs, eight graduate programs, and a doctoral program and an ever-growing focus on health care education. Classes are available on campuses in Leavenworth and Overland Park, and in several formats: traditional, evening-accelerated, and online.
Students benefit from small classes, providing true one-on-one attention from expert instructors—taught by professors, not teaching assistants. USM also received a 2018 Best Value School Award by University Research & Review—based on its reputation among students and alumni, the programs offered, accreditation, and affordability.
