A liberal arts education prepares graduates for meaningful careers in media, education, nonprofit, corporate sectors, and beyond. A quality education at Bellarmine equips students with the skills essential to success across industries: research and analysis, writing and critical thinking, teamwork and communication. 

A Bellarmine education doesn't only instill practical skills and deep knowledge in a student's major area of interest. Our liberal arts education, in the Jesuit and Marymount traditions of our founders, encourages students to ask big questions - about their values, their politics, and their place in the world. 

Our alumni have gone on to make an impact as inspiring leaders in diverse industries. Below are just a few.
