Special Programs Unique to This School
New College - Adult Undergraduate Program
The New College undergraduate program is designed for adults who are typically over the age of 24 and need an undergraduate program designed to fit their lives. This program offers evening, weekend, and online courses, offering classes on the main campus in south Austin and at the north Austin campus. Additionally, New College values the college-level learning adults have gained through work and life experience, helping you to turn that learning into course credit.
Learning Lasts a Lifetime…
Success in your chosen major and career builds from the bedrock of common courses that we call "general education."
This four-year exploration equips you to synthesize and communicate, not simply absorb information. We can think of no more useful skill or durable career advantage.
You will master critical and creative thinking, moral reasoning, communication and problem solving. You will grasp the world as a far more coherent and understandable whole. And you will step into larger roles and assume more social responsibility.
Students at St. Edward's venture across the globe to learn, work and widen their circles of influence — and perfect the languages they study at St. Edward’s (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Spanish). From Buenos Aires, Argentina, to our location in Angers, France, to one of Europe's financial hubs, Edinburgh, Scotland, to our new program in Beppu, Japan, our global opportunities can challenge assumptions and change more than your mind.
Amid these opportunities is our Global Understanding certification program, which further prepares students for life and work in an interconnected world. Tailored to any degree, this certification combines global-themed courses, foreign language proficiency and study abroad — opening doors to international connections and careers.
Our Holy Cross tradition holds that we do this not simply to make you smarter. We expose you to diverse points of view and train you to work well with others. And we propose a higher good, believing that sound thinking and mutual respect lead to right action.
St. Edward’s University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
