Maryville University was founded as an academy for young women in 1872, by the Religious of the Sacred Heart. Now, as a private, four-year university offering 90 + degree programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels, Maryville still stands firmly on our heritage.


At Maryville University, you can choose from over 90 undergraduate and graduate college majors. During your studies, you’ll actively participate in the learning process by doing, creating and interacting with each other and the innovative environment that surrounds you. With our revolutionary approach to personalized learning, it’s no surprise 97 percent of Maryville graduates obtain a job in their chosen field or attend graduate school within six months of graduating. That’s the Maryville advantage.


The primary objective of the Maryville University Office of Institutional Research is to support our students through the collection, analysis, and reporting of institutional data for decision making and accountability.


Maryville University is here to support you in your hiring efforts. We look forward to connecting your organization with our students and alumni. Employers connect with our students through a variety of channels and we would love to talk about how to grow your presence on campus.
