Schreiner University

Founded in 1923, Schreiner University is a private liberal arts university nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country in Kerrville, a 60-minute drive from San Antonio.Primarily undergraduate, Schreiner offers a personalized, integrated education that prepares its students for meaningful work and purposeful lives in a changing global society. A supportive university community is a tradition at Schreiner, with professors who excel in the art of teaching, a shared commitment to each students success, and a campus life that builds lifelong friendships.One measure of educational value is the amount of personal attention students receive from their professors, and theyre getting their moneys worth at Schreiner. While enrollment has grown to 1,128, the student-teacher ratio is kept at 14:1. All classes are small and most have fewer than 20 students. And there are no teaching assistants at Schreiner- all classes are taught by experienced and fully qualified faculty.Schreiner awards baccalaureate degrees, as well as two masters degrees, and offers 27 undergraduate majors and programs of study: accounting, biochemistry, biology, business, chemistry, communication studies, creative arts, education, engineering 3/2, English, exercise science, finance, general studies, graphic design, history, humanities, information systems, management, marketing, mathematics, music, nursing (BSN), political science, psychology, religion, sport management and theatre, in addition to many pre-professional programs.
