The Marianist Exchange Program allows students from any of the three Marianist universities in the United States to study at another school. Chaminade University of Honolulu and the University of Dayton are phenomenal Marianist universities. (We’re sister schools, so why wouldn’t they be?) But here’s just a little of what you can expect when you study with us.
St. Mary’s University was founded in 1852 and is the oldest university in San Antonio. We also claim rights to being the oldest Catholic university in Texas and the Southwest.
A student-to-faculty ratio of 12-to-1 assures you’ll receive personal attention from our more than 200 full-time faculty in 44 different areas. Our programs are designed to help students excel in their chosen fields including pre-professional programs in medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, physical therapy and law.
We’re located in the country’s seventh largest city, which means there is much to see, learn and do. San Antonio possesses a unique flavor and sense of history enjoyed by 20 million visitors each year. In addition to touring the Alamo, visitors flock to the River Walk for shopping and fine dining. And sports are always in season here. Several professional teams call San Antonio home and keep residents as well as guests cheering.
Come explore the possibilities that await you in San Antonio and at St. Mary’s University.
