College of Arts and Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences is at the core of who we are and what we do at Le Moyne. It is the academic center and intellectual hub of our Jesuit college, committed to transformative education rooted in the liberal arts. We are home to an array of engaging academic majors and nationally-recognized scholars and artists. Our talented faculty and staff have an unwavering commitment to maintaining a supportive learning environment and to delivering a rigorous, high-quality, student-centered education in the Jesuit tradition. Our collective goal is to prepare our graduates to excel in their chosen fields and to become ethical, conscientious, and globally-focused citizens who promote a more peaceful and just society.

Undergraduate students may pursue a broad range of academic majors and minors across the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and visual and performing arts. All undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences share a common, liberal arts Core Curriculum. We offer Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees in twenty disciplines, Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in nine fields, and more than a dozen specialized minor programs of study. Students have several opportunities to complete more than one major within the College or to choose a degree path that leads to a Bachelor’s degree (B.A. or B.S.) with Teacher Certification or a combined Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science in Teaching (B.A./M.S.T.). In addition, the College offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in arts administration, a post-baccalaureate certificate in arts administration, and advising pathways into the Madden School’s Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program and the Purcell School’s Master of Science (M.S.) in Occupational Therapy program. The College also participates in a Bachelor’s/Master’s dual degree partnership in engineering, 3+3 Bachelor’s/Juris Doctor’s joint degree partnerships in law, and 4+1 Bachelor’s/Master’s joint  degree partnerships in information sciences and in forensic science, along with other accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s degree programs and priority partnerships with highly-respected graduate programs. More detailed information about these opportunities is available with descriptions of specific majors and in the Graduate Program Pathways section of this catalog.
