The ideal blend of liberal arts and professional studies.
Valparaiso University is a comprehensive university that offers an expansive curriculum and emphasizes teaching in the manner of a small, traditional college, with plenty of individual guidance. Valpo is the right size for whatever you want to do — small enough to offer personal attention and one-on-one faculty interaction, and large enough to provide a wide range of opportunities to participate in campus and community activities.
The University is composed of five colleges, a Law School, and a Graduate School.

Home to 21 academic departments, the College of Arts and Sciences is the largest and most diverse of the colleges.
