Ratio Studiorum Program
Back in 1599, the early Jesuits called their Plan of Studies the Ratio Studiorum.
When Creighton restructured its system for advising freshmen and sophomores, it made sense to employ the Ratio Studiorum term. Why? Because with these first and second year students, advisors work to develop a modern day “Plan of Studies”.
But the Ratio Studiorum Program is more than academic advising. It includes numerous opportunities for academic growth, career exploration and personal development including:
- RSP 100 level course for freshmen and transfers “An Introduction to the Culture of Collegiate Life”
- Major/Minor Exploration Fair
- RSP 120 course, “Strategies for Academic Success”
- StrengthsQuest for sophomores
- Special presentations designed to assist freshmen and sophomores with major and career decision-making
- Opportunity for Arts & Sciences students to select a Pre-Major Advisor for sophomore year
- Assistance by Pre-Major Advisor with creation of a four year academic plan in one sophomore year
The Ratio Studiorum Program is led by Director, Dr. Richard Super and Associate Director, Mary Higgins. The program is housed within Academic Success and Retention in the Harper Center, Suite 4066.
