Regis University is a co-educational, private Roman Catholic University founded in 1877 by the Society of Jesus. It is divided into three colleges, which include The Rueckert-Hartman College for Heath Professions, Regis College, and the College for Professional Studies. The college was started by a group of exiled Italian Jesuits and was originally called Las Vegas College.
This university is a small undergraduate/graduate selective liberal arts school, which is located on the Lowell Campus in northwest Denver. Within the university, many of the students participate in service learning activities.
At this college, you will find the traditional undergraduate programs in addition to the Master’s of Science in Biomedical Sciences and the Master’s of Art in Education programs.
