We are the nation’s first Catholic-Franciscan university, and we cultivate confident and creative communicators, collaborative leaders, innovative problem solvers, caring business people and emphathetic professionals who are respectful of themselves, others and the diverse world around them. In addition to our online programs we also are proud of the St. Bonaventure University ground campus founded in Olean, NY in 1858. SBU Bonnies are members of the Atlantic 10 conference and serves as a place where more than 2,000 students are becoming extraordinary. 

We instill in students a real passion for learning and living. We encourage independent study, critical analysis and original expression.

""St. Bonaventure's Cybersecurity master's program content is perfect for providing the necessary knowledge base for a security leader. This program has a nice pace and is appropriate for someone who is working full time. Being a remote student, having access to instructors who respond in a timely manner is critical for success. The instructors are very knowledgeable and consistently reach out to the students. They were outstanding in reassuring me, checking up on me and guiding me along the way. It is more of a family feeling than just a school." "
