College of Arts and Sciences


Dean: Dianne Oliver, Ph.D.
Associate Dean: C. Yousuf George, Ph.D.
Associate Dean: Mario Martinez, D.M.A.

The College of Arts and Sciences at Nazareth College includes one school, 12 departments and over 40 individual and interdisciplinary undergraduate majors in the visual and performing arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and mathematics, as well as five master’s programs. The Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue, The Konar Center for Tolerance and Jewish Studies,  and the Center for Public History are 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 an innovative undergraduate core curriculum. Through teaching, research, and creative work, faculty foster an environment where students explore enduring questions about 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 Public History to Music Pedagogy, from Religious Studies to Math, from Biochemistry to Studio Art, and from Theatre to Sociology. Applying this learning in internships, performances, and service 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 in all of its dimensions.

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.
