USF Is Your University -- San Francisco Is Your Campus

USF was founded in 1855 as the first university in San Francisco and is ranked in the top tier of national universities (U.S. News and World Report's America's Best Colleges, 2010). USF is a private, Jesuit university with a distinguished history in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, arts, finance and business management. Of the 9,500 students at USF, 38% are graduate students. USF is composed of five graduate schools: Arts and Sciences, Business and Professional Studies, Education, Law and Nursing.

The university offers rigorous and innovative graduate programs with a truly extraordinary faculty filled with professors who are experts in their fields and passionate about research. USF's faculty members are dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized attention to their students by having small class sizes.

Students enjoy the rich experiences available in San Francisco, one of the world's most vibrant, cosmopolitan, and beautiful cities. As the financial, cultural and technological center of the West Coast of the U.S., the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the most economically advanced regions of the world. San Francisco's diverse population draws people from around the world, while the Pacific Ocean climate of the city is moderate all year round. Outside the city, USF students experience California's many other attractions, such as the Napa Valley wine country, the Redwood forests, Pacific beaches, the mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe, and the Big Sur Coast.
