Alvernia University is proud of its tradition as a small, Catholic college serving the needs of the local community; but we are also pleased to be the school of choice for students from all over Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and beyond! You will find on the serene hillside campus a faculty committed to teaching and a staff interested in students' success. More than 1,600 men and women-traditional-age residential and commuter students, as well as older students who combine work and education-have chosen Alvernia as the place to complete their baccalaureate degree in one of more than two dozen majors. Recently, we have augmented our undergraduate offerings with graduate study in three areas: education, business, and liberal studies. At Alvernia we combine our strong liberal arts core with professional studies that develop in students two essential qualities: "Skills for the Workplace, Values for Life."
