Don’t just learn it. Live it.

The best way to learn about anything is by immersing yourself in it, whether it’s a language, a faith or life itself. When you’re immersed in something, you’re fully engaged. You’re unafraid. You’re supported. Entering college is a good time to jump headlong into life and all that you can be. The University of Sioux Falls is a Christian, liberal arts University that will give you the tools you need to reach your full potential and land your dream job. 

How do we know that the University’s distinct approach to the liberal arts works for USF students? Within six months of graduation, 99% of our students find employment in their chosen fields. That’s across all of our accredited undergraduate majors and includes all graduates earning an Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree from USF. 

Which Major is Best for You?

That’s a good question. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer yet. Thanks to USF’s commitment to the liberal arts, you’ll have time to explore your options through core course requirements, which give you the chance to sample college classes from a variety of majors and degree programs. Based on those experiences and with the help of your USF advisor (and your family), we’re confident that you’ll find the best major for your talents and goals.

Along the way, you’ll be able to learn more about:

  • Top jobs for various majors
  • Best majors for the job or career you want
  • How employers view and value accredited undergraduate degrees, internships and other real-world experiences
