Rivier University is a four-year, Catholic institution that welcomes students from all backgrounds and provides a transformative and supportive educational experience. Rivier was founded by the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary and Sister Madeleine of Jesus in 1933. Throughout its history, the University has been dedicated to providing a learning environment that educates the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. Our graduates excel professionally, academically, and in service to their communities. Rivier offers academic programs at the Undergraduate, Professional Studies, Graduate, and Doctoral levels. No matter what level of study you’re engaged with at Rivier, you’ll find the academic experience engaging, hands-on, and face-to-face with faculty. You’ll choose from online and hybrid classes in addition to traditional courses on our 68-acre campus.
