USF academics prepare students for lives of professional excellence and personal value. How? Through relevant, up-to-date programs, expert faculty, real-world experience and connections, and our Franciscan values that demonstrate service, respect, justice, and other aspects of Catholic Social teaching.

We have 60+ academic programs  including associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees. We also have special programs, including Honors and Experiential Programs with Integrated Cooperatives (EPIC).


USF utilizes two distinct colleges within the university to serve the needs of students and their academic and career goals. Our colleges are directed by deans who work with expert faculty to deliver quality instruction and guidance. This structure helps our students receive the finest individual attention.
