“The same emphases that define CBU’s undergraduate program — critical thinking, hands-on experience, and ethical context — carry through in its master’s-level programs. In step with our Lasallian tradition, we strive to provide our graduate students with individual attention as they pursue a practical, real-world education.” Dr. John Smarrelli, president, CBU
Christian Brothers University has been active in Memphis since 1871, but its legacy stretches much farther. The institution itself has been around for more than three centuries.
