La Salle University - Bachelor's Degree
The history of La Salle University dates back to the late 17th century, when John Baptist de la Salle and Adrian Nyel started a school with the Sisters of the Child Jesus in Reims, France, to provide an education to poor children, in their native language – French. La Salle University is named after its founder John Baptist la Salle who was also the founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and became the patron saint of teachers in 1950.
Today La Salle University serves 6,200 students. The University combines theoretical and practical knowledge based on the philosophy advanced over 300 years ago by its namesake. This type of educational experience results in faculty, staff and administrators promoting engaged learning in which students participate in internships, service learning experiences, co-ops, research with faculty mentors, clinical rotations, and study abroad experiences. Students and faculty travel throughout the Philadelphia area (its largest classroom) and to more than a dozen countries each year. In this way, La Salle students become citizens of the world and apply the knowledge they acquire in the classroom to the larger community. Currently, about 6,000 Brothers of the Christian Schools and 75,000 lay and religious teachers and counselors around the world serve approximately 900,000 students in 84 countries.
