Uniquely Sagrado: Bilingual Fluency
Maybe you’ve studied Spanish in school. Maybe you speak it at home. Nothing will prepare you to be a bilingual professional, however, like immersion in a university setting. Our Center for Language and Culture provides multimedia tools and academic support for students working to improve fluency in a second language (English or Spanish), or even a third one. At Sagrado, you won’t just learn Spanish, you’ll learn in Spanish—while you earn a U.S. degree.
Uniquely Sagrado: Experienced Faculty
Cornell University, MIT, Stanford, the University of Madrid—Sagrado faculty earned their advanced degrees at these and other world-class institutions. At Sagrado, they are committed to teaching you both theory and practice, so you are well-equipped for a professional career or graduate school.
Uniquely Sagrado: Ecumenical Catholic Traditions
The Universidad del Sagrado Corazón’s roots are firmly Catholic, and from those roots it provides shade and creates a welcoming community for people of all faiths. In the ecumenical spirit of Vatican II, Sagrado encourages intellectual freedom, framed by our shared ethical responsibility to build a more just and peaceful society.
Uniquely Sagrado: Island Time
Sand, waves, palm trees—of course. Art museums, politics, music, too. Neighborhoods and resorts. Banks and nightclubs. Tourists, parents, business owners, nurses, journalists, teachers, kids. High-tech corporations, advanced transportation, and a unique rain forest. Puerto Rico is a modern, urban, tropical island. Sagrado is a modern, urban, intellectual hub that’s also a fierce competitor in swimming, tennis, soccer, and volleyball. Your education should be for your whole self, to prepare you for your whole life.
