A Bellarmine education prepares you for anything.

Liberal arts students enter the working world with a competitive advantage for meaningful careers in media, education, nonprofit, tech, business, and beyond. Our alumni go on to succeed in diverse fields because the skills they learn here are in demand across sectors: research and analysis, writing and critical thinking, teamwork and communication. 

The many paths our recent alumni have taken are evidence of the demand and flexibility of a liberal arts degree.
