Founded in 1949, the University of San Diego sets the standard for an engaged, contemporary Catholic university where innovative changemakers confront humanity's urgent challenges. USD provides a character-building education that fosters independent thought, innovation, integrity, analytical thinking, and an open-minded and collaborative world view. In 1972, the original College of Women, College of Men, and the School of Law merged and formed what is now the University of San Diego. Committed to the Catholic faith, the school's leaders also embraced the spirit of ecumenism and academic freedom.

College of Arts and Sciences
School of Business
School of Leadership and Education Sciences
Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science
Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering
