Get more out of every class

Our small class sizes mean more one-on-one attention. While the classroom is where you’ll learn, it’s also where you’ll make friends, collaborate and connect with inspiring professors.

    The robust knowledge base a liberal arts education provides allows me to be able to better present my research to the world. It gave me the skills to hold conversations with people unfamiliar with my research and maybe the topic in general.

    I’d tell the same thing to people just starting out: Find the major that speaks to you, and eventually it’ll work out at the end. It’s all about the skills you learn and the connections you make — the way you express yourself and your qualities, and how you’re willing to learn.

    What’s great about St. Norbert and the [communication] program itself is that you can create your own educational path. I was able to create an independent study under the direction of Dr. Mark Glantz (Communication).

Global experiences

One-third of St. Norbert students study abroad, traveling to destinations across 30 countries. Learn philosophy in Greece, practice your language skills in Spain or get credits for a marketing internship in Ireland. We have semester- and year-long programs as well as short-term Global Seminars during the J-term and summer.

Even if you can’t make it overseas, you can pursue a globally oriented major or minor, participate in on-campus programs and events or find global internships right here in Wisconsin.

We have a remarkable faculty at St. Norbert College. Teaching is not only their priority, it is their passion. They are deeply invested in their students’ success — as they demonstrate every day through their guidance, mentoring, encouragement, and countless acts of support, large and small.
