Saint Xavier University is the oldest university in the state of Illinois. A private, Catholic, comprehensive institution of higher learning, Saint Xavier has two campus locations; namely, one in Chicago and another in Orland Park. It was founded in 1846 by the Sisters of Mercy at the request of Bishop William Quarter and is currently one of 18 colleges and universities sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy that provides education to over 5,100 students.
Renowned for its long history of educating students for the purpose of preparing them for professional success and laying the foundation for personal fulfillment, Saint Xavier University offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees through its College of Arts and Sciences, School of Continuing and Professional Studies, School of Education, Graham School of Management, and School of Nursing. In addition, it has an online master’s program that promotes the same fundamentals and upholds the same quality of education and teaching as its campus-based programs. The only difference is that the online programs offer the added convenience of allowing students to study from their home or office and the flexibility of arranging their coursework to fit their busy schedule.
Master’s degree programs offered online include Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction; Master of Science in Nursing in Clinical Leadership; and Master of Science in Nursing in Executive Leadership.
