HISTORY

Providence College (also known as "PC") is a private, coeducational, Roman Catholic university located about two miles west of downtown Providence. With a 20122013 enrollment of 3,852 undergraduate students and 735 graduate students, the college specializes in academic programs in the liberal arts. It is the only college or university in North America administered by the Dominican Order of friars.

Founded in 1917, the college offers 49 majors and 34 minors and, beginning with the class of 2016, requires all its students to complete 16 credits in the Development of Western Civilization, which serves as a major part of the college's core curriculum (down from 20 credits previously). Fr. Brian Shanley has been the school's president since 2005.

 

In athletics, Providence College competes in NCAA's Division I and is a founding member of the Big East Conference and Hockey East.
