Matteo Ricci College

Student-centered Jesuit Education

Matteo Ricci College is a close-knit, vibrant community committed to academic excellence and to making every student as successful as possible. Our small classes ensure collaboration between students and professors and deepen students' understanding of their studies. Each of the three degrees is built on the humanities curriculum, a solid foundation for future studies that is rooted in 450 years of Jesuit tradition. 

Three Pre-professional Degrees

Each degree promotes the discovery of the self and the world through critical thinking, reading, writing, and practical experience.

Many of our students earn a second major or even another degree in a field of their choice. They also go on to various graduate studies including law, medicine, business and teaching.

Why Study the Humanities?

  • Know the story of the human condition.
  • Connect all disciplines.
  • Learn from the past to understand the future.
  • Engage the world.
  • Be ready for any career.
