College of Arts and Sciences


Dean: Deborah Dooley, Ph.D.

The College of Arts and Sciences at Nazareth College includes 13 departments and over 40 individual and interdisciplinary undergraduate majors in the fine and performing arts, humanities, and in the social and natural sciences as well as four master’s programs. The Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue is also located within this College.

Faculty and students in the College of Arts and Sciences are engaged both in these focused major programs, and also with a new and innovative undergraduate core curriculum. Through teaching, research and creative work, faculty foster an environment where students explore questions enduring to the human condition, and gain skills and knowledge that prepare them to live and work across a lifetime. Students develop the habits of mind of thoughtful, adaptable, creative and productive human beings.

College of Arts and Sciences’ students prepare for future professional and personal success by stretching their intellectual boundaries on campus and off. They may take classes in a wide array of areas from the Art Department’s Visual Communication Design Program to a brand new Post-baccalaureate Pre-medical, Veterinary and Dental Studies Certificate for students already holding a bachelor’s degree. Applying this learning in internships, performances, and volunteer settings, as well as through a rich array of opportunities to study abroad, they develop global and cultural competency–a broad understanding of the world in which they live.

Students learn to read closely, think effectively from problem to solution, and to write for multiple audiences, situations and purposes. When they leave Nazareth, students from the College of Arts and Sciences are professionals in the best sense of the word: scientists, historians, communicators, artists, musicians, performers, mathematicians, therapists, anthropologists, psychologists, educators, and citizens imbued with an understanding of interfaith traditions and with the skills to work, to live and to serve.
