2015-2016 Academic Catalog

Maryville University is a selective, comprehensive and nationally ranked private institution with 5,033 students. Maryville offers more than 75 degrees at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels to students from 49 states and 28 countries. Consistently ranked as a top private school by Forbes and Kiplinger’s, in 2012 Maryville was named the No. 1 Overperforming University in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Maryville’s athletics teams compete in 18 sports at the Division II level in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. Founded in 1872, the University is ideally situated on 130 picturesque acres in West St. Louis County.

Whether a commuter or on-campus resident, our students enjoy a lifestyle that is decidedly Maryville. If you ask, students will tell you they don’t just go to Maryville … they Live Maryville. One look at our academic approach and campus facilities, and you’ll understand what they mean.



At Maryville, academic excellence is our highest priority. Our enrollment of approximately 6,000 students includes undergraduates, Weekend & Evening College students and graduate students. We pride ourselves on our challenging programs and the caliber of our student body. With individualized advising and career exploration, our Academic Success and Advising centers afford students every opportunity to excel.


We believe that inviting and comfortable living space is important to academic success. In the past 10 years, we have built five new student apartment complexes with commons that collectively house almost 700 students. Our two air-conditioned, coeducational residence halls offer additional living quarters for students desiring to stay on campus.

Be Inspired

Maryville is tucked away in the heart of the suburbs on a 130-acre campus where natural beauty abounds. It’s difficult not to be inspied by the rolling hills, wooded areas, creeks, two lakes and miles of walking trails.


Get Involved

There are plenty of opportunities to stay busy outside the classroom. Both residential and commuter students are active in student government, intramural sports and over 50 campus clubs and organizations.


When it comes time for our students to seek real-life career experiences, opportunities are close by. The adjacent Maryville Corporate Centre and St. Luke’s Medical Center provide convenient access to internships.
