Academics

OLLU is nationally recognized for its strong academic offerings. In San Antonio, the University boasts the highest percentage of classes with fewer than 20 students, according to U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2014.



These small classes allow students to get to know their professors, which in turns leads to academic success. High school guidance counselors surveyed by U.S. News & World Report ranked OLLU among the nation’s top 200 universities nationally for undergraduate education.

Students from San Antonio, across Texas and around the world are drawn to a diverse offering of 33 bachelor’s, 14 master’s and two doctoral programs. The Worden School, established in 1942, was the first school of social work in Texas and remains one of our most popular programs. The Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work programs enjoy partnerships with an extensive network of public and private social service agencies that provide a range of opportunities for student internships.

One of our fastest-growing programs is Computer Information Systems and Security, which is certified by the National Security Agency. Graduate and undergraduate students have the opportunity to receive the Information Assurance Scholarship from the Department of Defense, an award three OLLU students have won.
