About Us

A Catholic institution sponsored by the Augustinians of the Assumption and rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, Assumption is known for forming individuals known for critical intelligence, thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service through a curriculum grounded in the liberal arts and extending to the domain of professional studies. Enlivened by the Catholic affirmation of the harmony of faith and reason, we aim, by the pursuit of the truth, to transform the minds and hearts of students. Assumption favors diversity and ecumenically welcomes all who share its goals.

With 33 majors and 49 minors, you are sure to find an academic area of interest to you - whether you enter college knowing what that is, or if you figure it out once you get here. And with a dedicated faculty that will guide you each step of the way, your path to success will be clearly lit.

Assumption offers undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs.

Assumption's application for university status was recently approved by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In preparation for the transition, Assumption restructured into five Schools. By establishing separate schools, Assumption may leverage its strengths, more easily develop new course options and programs, and allow for innovation. The Schools include: College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; Grenon School of Business; School of Graduate and Professional Studies; School of Health Professions; and the School of Nursing.
