Academics at Divine Word College are as uniquely specialized as the college itself.


Both focus on delivering an undergraduate, liberal-arts education dedicated to educating Catholic missionaries. Both are grounded in the teachings of the Catholic Church and the tradition of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD), one of the largest, international missionary orders in the world.

That tradition is rooted in the belief that God’s Truth reveals itself through the free and open exchange of thoughts and ideas with those from different cultures or with different beliefs as well as the with poor and marginalized. You will have the opportunity to experience this tradition by living, praying, studying and working in our diverse intercultural college community, made up of students, faculty and staff from over 20 countries around the world.

Divine Word College is an accredited institution of higher learning, which offers:

English as a Second Language (ESL) courses are offered at Divine Word College through its well-established Intensive English Language Institute (IELI). The number of students who complete its rigorous course work and then go on to earn a degree at DWC is testament to the quality of the IELI program.


The focused nature of our academic programs, coupled with spiritual formation and missionary preparation through ministry outreach, allows Divine Word College to deliver on the promise of its mission, to educate future missionaries.
