About Marylhurst

MapMarylhurst University is a private, co-educational, liberal arts university just south of Portland, Oregon, dedicated to excellence in adult education. We offer nearly 50 accredited undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs, all designed for students who balance school with work, family and other responsibilities.

At Marylhurst, we believe learning is lifelong and collaborative, and we encourage a spirit of entrepreneurism, innovation and curiosity. You'll experience small, seminar-style classes, personalized attention from our practitioner faculty and a strong sense of community. Whether you take classes on our beautiful campus or online, you'll be in a learning environment that both values and challenges you.

Our heritage as a Catholic university founded by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary in 1893 continues to drive us. While today we welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds, we are true to the values of our founding Sisters, who focused on educating the whole person through a rigorous liberal arts experience centered on ethical leadership, service and social responsibility.
