St. Jerome’s University, established in 1865 and co-founder of the University of Waterloo, is a Roman Catholic institution which values its heritage of earnest intellectual inquiry and social responsibility. St. Jerome’s students combine academic pursuits with outreach to individuals in need, service organizations and social groups in the community beyond the campus. The university takes pride in the religious and cultural diversity of faculty, staff and students who strive to build a distinctive community where students grow intellectually, spiritually and socially.
At St. Jerome’s University, students have the best of both worlds. Students earn a reputable University of Waterloo degree while being part of the close-knit St. Jerome’s community. With 31 faculty members, students study in either the Faculty of Arts, which offers hundreds of courses in more than 25 different subject areas in the humanities and the social sciences, or the Faculty of Math where students explore the many facets of the mathematical and computer sciences.
St. Jerome’s University offers the Sexuality, Marriage and Family Studies program, an interdisciplinary program which combines anthropology, English, history, philosophy, religious studies, sociology, social work, and women’s studies to provide a broad perspective for the investigation of sexuality and relationships. St. Jerome’s also offers the Italian Studies program, and is the creator of the Human Sciences 101: Great Dialogues, Reflection and Action course in which students receive personal attention in the refinement of their speaking, writing, and critical-thinking skills, facilitating their transition to university.
St. Jerome’s is also known for its joint Legal Studies program with the University of Waterloo. Students gain a broad understanding of the origins of law and the legal system, and an awareness of their impact on society.
