Welcome to the School of Liberal Arts at Manhattan College! As Dean of the School, I invite you to explore our website and get a taste of the exceptional programs and opportunities we have to offer. I hope you will consider joining us here to pursue your intellectual passions via one our School’s many liberal arts majors and minors.
No matter which path you choose, our School's dedicated faculty and challenging and innovative programs will provide you with a toolbox of knowledge and intellectual skills—in research, analysis, communication, and more!—that will prepare and serve you well for both career and 9-to-5 and life and 24/7 in the 21st century.
In the process, you'll have the opportunity to pursue unique courses and experiences that will take you everywhere from the heart of New York City (where internships and other learning opportunities for our students abound) to, for example, the woods of Maine or the streets of Paris, Madrid or Venice!
But while the content of our programs and our many off-campus academic opportunities—particularly in New York City—do indeed set us apart from other schools of liberal arts, the greatest difference is our people. Our faculty are truly exceptional teacher-scholars who are committed to working closely with and caring about each one of our students, both as students and as people (we are not just “student-centered;” we are “person-centered,” as the College mission clearly states). Our faculty’s commitment is evident in everything from the memorable courses and learning experiences they design, to the research mentoring they provide, and the hours they spend meeting with students on an individual basis. Our faculty are, simply put, amazing. Add to all this small classes and our distinctive, thought-provoking Core Curriculum, and our School of Liberal Arts is, truly, one very special place.
So, again, I encourage you to explore our website, as well as contact us and come visit, and consider joining us here in the School of Liberal Arts at Manhattan College—a truly special place, indeed.
