Can’t make it to campus? Visit Canisius at your own pace, whenever you want. These short videos will tell you more about our academic programs and give you an idea what campus life is like. We’ve organized them into playlists, so you can easily browse all of them—or as many as you’d like.

Academics and Beyond

Even if you think you know what to major in, check out these videos about the academic experience here at Canisius. You may be surprised. And if you have no idea what you want to study, be sure to watch the one about our Pathfinders program!

Education, Sport Management & Human Services

As an education major, you can take advantage of early field placements, thanks to our strong partnerships with K-12 schools. Majors like physical education, health and sport management offer other exciting career path options.

Business

As a business major, you’ll gain far more than technical expertise. From the first-year business immersion challenge to a capstone course in strategic management, hands-on learning experiences will give you a competitive edge.

Arts & Sciences

Whether you major in the humanities, social sciences or natural sciences, you’ll gain deep knowledge along with a set of adaptable skills. We offer a wide range of academic programs that can be customized and combined.

Pathfinders

If you arrive on campus not knowing what to study, don’t worry! Working with advisors from the Griff Center, you’ll be able to identify your strengths and interests and create your own meaningful academic path.

Downtime Destinations

Our urban campus is centrally located, so it’s easy to move around in a city with lots of greenspace and a beautiful waterfront. Hiking, kayaking and biking are just a few of the many ways Griffs like to unwind when they’re not on campus.

A Place That Feels Like Home

In so many ways, college becomes a home away from home for four years. Listen to two Griffs describe how Canisius has become home for them, thanks to faculty who really care about their individual growth and success.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Creating a sense of belonging for all is part of our Jesuit mission. When we welcome new perspectives, we learn a lot—about each other, ourselves and the world around us. Here are some of the resources that support a meaningful journey for every Griff.

 

Public Safety  

The Department of Public Safety is open 24 hours per day and available as an ally and resource for students. The goal is to develop relationships with students and through workshops and other initiatives help students develop life skills to use away from campus.

Griff Center for Student Success

Having someone in your corner can make all the difference. That’s where the friendly faces at the Griff Center come in. The staff here will help you with everything from creating your first-year schedule to finding an internship to preparing for that first job interview.
