College of Health Sciences website


The College of Health Sciences features many of Marquette's highest ranked and nationally recognized programs. Our students come to us with the strongest academic credentials at the university, and experience a culture of excellence that includes state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities and many opportunities to interact with faculty scholars who are passionate about teaching, research and service.

Our mission as a Jesuit university is to provide an excellent, rigorous and well-rounded education, and our location in the heart of the city of Milwaukee promises ample opportunity for exposure to the health and medical professions that a major metropolitan setting provides. While you can expect excellence from our faculty, you will be in some elite company with our academically talented students. Whether in our highly rigorous professional programs of study or through outstanding pre-professional and undergraduate education, our dedicated faculty and committed students have created a truly vibrant academic environment that’s waiting for you.
