Saint Mary’s College to Debut Three New Graduate Programs

Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, Indiana, is an educational institution for women near the campus of the University of Notre Dame. This year, the 171-year-old women’s college will launch three new graduate programs and men will be considered for admission.

Carol Ann Mooney, president of St. Mary’s College since 2004, acknowledged that “in most instances, these are more female-dominated fields. But we will be open and welcoming to men.” The doctor of nursing practice and master’s degree in data science will largely be taught online.

Women enrolled in these new graduate programs can apply for campus housing. Men who enroll in these programs will not be permitted to live on campus.

This will not be the first time that Saint Mary’s College has offered graduate degree programs. From 1943 to 1969, the college conferred 76 doctoral degrees and 245 master’s degrees in theology. Three of these degree recipients were men.
