Holy Cross College is a Roman Catholic, co-educational, residential institution of higher education in Notre Dame, an unincorporated community northeast of the city of South Bend, in St. Joseph County, Indiana, United States — as are Saint Mary’s College and the University of Notre Dame. The college was founded in 1966 and is administered by members of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
The college’s baccalaureate program consists of four requirements that take students outside the classroom: a service learning project, a professional internship, an international experience, and a senior capstone presentation. Each student completes the same multidisciplinary core of courses, and then electives can be taken that will allow each student to gain knowledge and experience in areas of choice.
Holy Cross is a Catholic, residential, coed, four-year institution, offering a practical, experiential, liberal arts curriculum. The mission of Holy Cross College is to educate and form global citizens with the competence to see and the courage to act. We prepare our graduates to face a complex world, leading lives of impact and success.
