Villanova University Academics

Villanova students studying together

Villanova is a welcoming, caring community of learners. The University’s educational approach, based on the teaching of St. Augustine, is to engage both heart and mind. This means that the Villanova experience isn’t only about your intellectual growth—it’s about your growth as a whole person.

Villanova offers more than 45 major areas of study within four Colleges: the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Villanova School of Business, the College of Engineering and the College of Nursing.

At Villanova, you'll find proven scholars—not graduate assistants—at the head of your classes. Our faculty have the highest academic credentials, and even the most senior teach. In fact, nationally renowned endowed chairs have taught our freshman Augustine and Culture Seminar. With Villanova classes averaging 22 students, and our student/faculty ratio at only 11:1, you will get to know your professors well.
