Overview

NYC's Fordham University, a Leader in Liberal Arts, Offers over 50 Undergraduate Degrees

When undergraduate students research colleges in the New York area, historic Fordham University quickly rises to the top of the list. Originally a Jesuit university, Fordham is an independent university in the Jesuit education style of excellence. The university offers over 50undergraduate programs in the liberal arts and sciences and B.A. degrees in business administration in the world's most stimulating, international city.

A pioneer in interdisciplinary degrees in liberal arts, Fordham University creates powerful, cross-disciplinary learning experiences for undergraduates and graduates with collaborating faculty from different departments. The programs prepare students for meaningful careers as sound and ethically centered leaders in a complex global society.

Since 1841, Fordham University has been an integral part of New York City's personality and character. Approximately 8,200students are enrolled in undergraduate programs at Fordham's four undergraduate colleges: the College of Business Administration, Fordham College at Lincoln Center, Fordham College at Rose Hill, and Fordham College of Liberal Studies.

Nearly half of Fordham's undergraduates live on campus on the university's original Rose Hill Bronx campus and the Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan. Qualifying students have a unique opportunity to spend their freshman year in at progressive living-learning dormitory known as an Integrated Learning Community (ILC). The facility integrates Fordham's renowned intellectual tradition with experience-based learning.

Highly Acclaimed Fordham University Faculty Challenge and Support Students

Fordham's international faculty represents leading scholars and researchers who regularly publish and present their pioneering research findings at national and international conferences. In keeping with the Jesuit university's commitment to excellence, professors create challenging learning experiences for undergraduates in classrooms, research labs, and on field trips around NYC.

One of the greatest benefits for Fordham students is its prime location in New York City. Fordham constantly implements programs that explore the cultural, intellectual, and spiritual diversity of NYC and beyond. It is hard to find a college of liberal arts that offers such high-caliber programs in and outside the classroom in the renowned Jesuit education tradition of excellence.

Fordham College at Rose Hill

FCRH, the university's oldest and largest undergraduate liberal arts college, was the first Catholic institution of higher learning in the Northeast in the 19th century. Situated on a spacious green campus amidst magnificent Gothic architecture, FCRH offers over 50 undergraduate degree programs to nearly 8,200 undergraduates.

Fordham College at Lincoln Center

When the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the cultural center of NYC, was planned, Fordham was invited to bring its campus to the center, now home to the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, and the Julliard School. Since then, graduates of FCLC have gone on to outstanding careers in business, politics, entertainment, and theater.

FCLC's nationally recognized B.F.A. in Dance program collaborates with the world-famous Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. The most popular majors of incoming freshmen at FCLC are: biological sciences, communications and media studies, political science, English, psychology, history, economics, international political economy, and chemistry. Nearly 900 undergraduates live in a 20-story high-rise dormitory on campus.

Fordham College of Business Administration

One of the nation's finest undergraduate business schools, Fordham's College of Business Administration in New York City is devoted to developing ethical business professionals who can effectively manage in various, challenging leadership roles in global society. Courses are offered at the Lincoln Center and Rose Hill campuses.

The added value of Fordham's school of business administration is that it is in the geographic epicenter of international business. Fordham students are encouraged to spend a semester or a summer participating in international excursions, business internships, and service projects in Europe, China, and other countries.

An ideal location for a college of business administration, New York City creates endless opportunities for students from Long Island, Westchester, the Northeast, across the country and around the world with internship programs at over 100 outstanding companies; the CEO Breakfast Club, where students informally discuss timely issues with top executives; and the GLOBE program, a multidisciplinary study of international business, foreign languages, and cultures.

Fordham College of Liberal Studies

Fordham College of Liberal Studies welcomes back adult students returning to complete their college degrees. Courses are offered online, as well as at the Rose Hill, Lincoln Center, or Westchester campuses in the evenings and on weekends to meet the scheduling needs of adults juggling busy lives and other obligations.
