For the past four years, Catholic University
has worked with hundreds of Tucson area community members, including students, parents, teachers, principals, and business leaders to develop an innovative 4-year business degree. This BA in Management is affordable, giving students up to four semesters of internships and connecting students to gig work and CEO lectures as early as the first year. It is co-located on the PCC downtown campus and the Diocese of Tucson Pastoral Center with a hybrid program that only requires class 2-3 days per week. Catholic U –Tucson’s hybrid learning model combines online lectures with in-person discussions, maintains a small class size (never larger than 25) and allows students to learn directly from faculty in DC and instructors on the ground in Tucson. Interested families can join in a Zoom information session
7:00-7:45 p.m. on April 6, 20, May 4, 18 or June 1, 15. You can see a five minute video about the program at Catholic University - Tucson
and even hear about Salpointe graduate Braulio Quintero’s experiences at Salpointe HS Alumni Braulio
