Saint Mary’s University of San Antonio is a private, Catholic and Marianist liberal arts learning institution located in historic downtown San Antonio. It was founded in 1852 by the Society of Mary in response to a call by their superiors for them to put up an educational institution in San Antonio that would revive the people of that city. Through their work and those that came after them, the university was able to maintain its reputation as a “great education center of the Southwest.”

Now the oldest Catholic university in Texas and the Southwest, Saint Mary’s University has almost 4,000 enrollees and is divided into five academic schools: School of Humanities and Social Sciences; School of Science, Engineering and Technology; Bill Greehey School of Business; Graduate School; and School of Law. The university’s curriculum integrates liberal studies with professional preparation and ethical commitment. It offers over 70 undergraduate and graduate majors and over 120 degree programs including two doctoral and two law programs.
