The Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College experience is simple. Students are empowered to meld intellect and spirituality, direct ambition, attain goals, improve lives and stretch beyond the imagination - to Aspire Higher. This education equips them with the foundation to problem solve effectively, learn skills of organized thinking and commitment to service in a community that extends well beyond the classroom.

        At Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, students engage their minds, hearts and spirits. Inspired to pursue passions, students emerge as strong leaders prepared for life’s opportunities. They aspire to find their voice, making a positive impact in their lives, careers and communities. With a focus on liberal arts and women’s needs, students become critical thinkers and problem solvers.

        SMWC is the oldest, Catholic liberal arts college for women in the United States, founded by Saint Mother Theodore Guerin and the Sisters of Providence in 1840. While remaining committed to our heritage as a women-only campus, educational opportunities are offered to women and men through online and graduate programs.

        The College’s commitment to academics is reinforced by its consistent recognition of U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges” guidebook. The College ranked in the top 5 percent of “2014 Best Regional Colleges.”

        Here, students benefit from the perfect blend of liberal arts and career preparation. This combination equips students to develop as leaders and to develop creative solutions to complex problems, determined to make a lasting impact in their communities.

        With 25 undergraduate degree programs and more than 20 clubs and organizations, SMWC encourages each student to explore many fields of knowledge. The College boasts two of its signature programs:

  • Equine Program.  SMWC is the only college or university in Indiana to offer a bachelor of science degree in equine studies.
  • 3+1.  Students earn both bachelor’s and master’s degrees of Leadership Development in just four years.

        Additionally, in the spirit of competition and teamwork, our well-established athletic program enhances the overall collegiate experience. Nearly 30 percent of students participate in eight intercollegiate sports.
