College of Arts & Sciences
Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences at Canisius comprises a diverse community of educators, researchers, and students. It encompasses the humanities and fine arts, the social sciences, and the natural sciences. Central to the College of Arts and Sciences is the mission of Canisius to provide transformative learning experiences that engage students in the classroom and beyond. As a Catholic Jesuit institution, we are committed to the values embodied in a liberal arts education, especially those ideals contained in our exceptional Core Curriculum. At the same time, we recognize the importance of offering outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students in their areas of specialized interest. Faculty members also provide a myriad of innovative experiences beyond the classroom learning opportunities through such options as study abroad, internships, and immersion experiences. I encourage browsing our website for more information about our programs of study.
