Our Schools

Canisius supports a vibrant learning community through our three main academic units. Each is led by a distinguished faculty of teachers, scholars and practitioners. Your home school isn’t just the starting point of your academic journey, but also the gateway to the wide range of learning opportunities awaiting you across campus and around Buffalo.

College of Arts & Sciences

Whether you want to conduct groundbreaking research or immerse yourself in the humanities, the College of Arts & Sciences provides a diverse selection of programs to pursue your passion. Your education will transcend the classroom, allowing you to hone your talents on stage or in the laboratory, studio, community and environment. Through these experiences, you’ll gain insights into the world around you, and learn where you can make the greatest impact. 

Richard J. Wehle School of Business

Today’s business leaders must be able to apply both their expertise and their values to solve real business challenges. At the Wehle School of Business, you’ll receive outstanding professional training ranging from the theoretical to the practical. You’ll learn from hands-on business experiences, such as the student-run Golden Griffin Griffin Fund. And you’ll tap into Canisius’ extensive network of successful executives and entrepreneurs in Western New York and around the globe. 

School of Education & Human Services

Being an effective teacher requires both the knowledge to deliver subject matter and the passion to inspire the hearts and minds of your students. You’ll achieve both at the School of Education and Human Services through small, personal classes and collaborations with accomplished practitioners. Plus, thanks to strong partnerships with 20 public and private K-12 schools, you’ll gain valuable classroom experience starting freshman year.
