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. Every year over 80% of our students completed an internship or participated in research.


Each year, our students log thousands of hours of service, through 800 partnerships with local, national and international organizations. Service to humanity is an important part of our curriculum, and Creighton students in every academic path have many opportunities to explore how to make the world a better place. The Schlegel Center for Service and Justice offers students many ways to engage with the community.
