Within 6 months of graduation, 99% of our recent alumni are pursuing an advanced degree or employed and earning starting salaries competitive with national averages.

Student Opportunities


As early as freshman year, students can begin hands-on academic research with faculty—an experience not found at larger universities. CURAS (Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship) is dedicated to facilitating undergraduate student research, and students at higher levels have many opportunities to engage in research.


Students have access to thousands of job and internship opportunities locally and around the country. Creighton students have secured a variety of internships including positions at Omaha-based Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies and operations.

The John P. Fahey Career Center offers many tools and resources—including our worldwide network of alumni—to help students find employment opportunities and reach their career goals. In 2021, 80% of our students completed an internship or participated in research.

Service to humanity is an important part of our curriculum, and Creighton students in every academic path have the opportunity to ask big questions and explore how to make the world a better place.
