College of Liberal Arts

Advancing the liberal arts experience of students is a key component of a Benedictine University education. The College of Liberal Arts provides this to undergraduates through its major and minor programs, interdisciplinary offerings, support for the core curriculum and to adult undergraduate and graduate students.

Daniel L. Goodwin College of Business

One of Benedictine University's great strengths is its integration of liberal with professional learning. The Daniel L. Goodwin College of Business offers 10 undergraduate degree programs, three master's programs, several graduate certificates and a doctoral program in Organization Development. Programs are designed to meet the needs of traditional-age students as well as working adults, with courses offered in semester, quarter, accelerated and cohort formats.

College of Education and Health Services

The School of Education

Quality teacher education places great emphasis on a strong liberal arts foundation. The interactive relationship among liberal arts, disciplinary area of study, professional education and communication skills uniquely prepares Benedictine University students for a career in teaching. Benedictine University has provided accredited teacher education for 40 years. Today the University prepares individuals for three different certificates: Elementary, Special Education and Secondary, which span seven subject areas in biology, chemistry, English, math, physics, social sciences and Spanish. Graduate Education programs include a Master of Arts in Education, a Master of Education and a doctorate in Higher Education and Organizational Leadership.

The School of Health Services

The School of Health Services includes undergraduate programs in Health Administration, Nursing and Nutrition and the graduate Public Health and Nutrition programs.

School of Graduate, Adult and Professional Education

You will find adult undergraduate and graduate degrees in a variety of disciplines, including business, education and health care, throughout northern and central Illinois and southwest Arizona. We also help you customize your degree with a variety of relevant certificates and dual-degree programs. Our on campus programs meet on BenU’s campus site (either in Lisle, Springfield or Mesa) one night a week; our hybrid/off campus programs have some classes that meet one night a week at off campus locations (including our partnership programs that can be held at your worksite) and other classes that are offered online; our online programs are offered in 43 states from the convenience of your computer.
