Why Choose SBU?

Why Choose SBU?

Earn an online master’s degree from an established accredited institution and the first Catholic-Franciscan university in the United States. As a private Catholic-Franciscan university, St. Bonaventure University Online embraces the principles of discovery, community and individual worth. These values translate into six inclusive programs for online master of business administration, online master's in cybersecurity, online master’s of integrated marketing communications, online master’s of strategic leadership, online master’s of science in education school counseling and online master’s of science in education clinical mental health counseling.

St. Bonaventure is known for its academics as it is ranked #2 in Best Value Schools and #22 in Regional Universities North by the 2019 U.S. News and World Report. In addition, SBU Bonnies are proud members of the Atlantic 10 conference.

Not only is St. Bonaventure ranked highly by US News and World Report, but the student success data for the counseling education program are some of the most impressive I noted during my school search. Only having to take one class at a time is ingenious; there are no knowledge deficits going into courses, so I rarely have to double back and connect the dots between concepts. It also saves a ton of anxiety knowing that SBU will assist me with my practicum and internship placements-no other universities I considered do that.
