School of Arts and Sciences
Dr. Theresa D. Westbay, Interim Dean
The School of Arts and Sciences offers degrees and minors in over 20 undergraduate academic disciplines along with interdisciplinary minors and scholarship programs.
The School, in partnership with the other schools that make up St. John Fisher College, provides educational experiences that are rooted in the liberal arts and that prepare students to lead lives of intellectual, professional, and civic integrity. This is accomplished by:
- Providing opportunities for undergraduate students to develop proficiency in one or more of the major fields of study housed in the School.
- Promoting the engagement of students, faculty members, and professional staff within a learning environment that creates high expectations along with the support for all to achieve their full potential.
In addition, the academic programs in the School of Arts and Sciences are primarily responsible for the offerings included in the College’s core curriculum, the component of the undergraduate curriculum that initially establishes the centrality of the liberal arts in the academic experience of all students.
