Fordham University, the Jesuit University of New York, is committed to the discovery of Wisdom and the transmission of Learning, through research and through undergraduate, graduate and professional education of the highest quality. Guided by its Catholic and Jesuit traditions, Fordham fosters the intellectual, moral and religious development of its students and prepares them for leadership in a global society.
The combination of our ten schools and our three campuses (Lincoln Center, Rose Hill, and Westchester) provide unique educational opportunities not matched by other New York institutions.
Here, students engage in a traditionally strong Fordham education that is founded on a challenging core curriculum and enriched by the resources of Manhattan. A freshman seminar and a senior seminar in values frame the core curriculum, reinforcing the habits of mind that distinguish Fordham students and that enable them to make connections among the various liberal arts disciplines that can be pursued as majors for a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree.
Dedicated faculty encourage students to confront the most pressing critical and ethical questions in the study of English, Philosophy, Theology, History and the entire array of liberal arts disciplines such as Political Science, Natural Science, Economics and Psychology. State-of-the-art facilities allow students to pursue majors in Visual Arts, Theatre and Communications.
In addition to the main campus in the Bronx, Fordham College at Lincoln Center's extensive community service programs afford students the opportunity to learn outside the traditional classroom and to act with compassion in the tradition of Christian humanism. Devoted not only to serving the disenfranchised of New York, programs like Urban Plunge and Global Outreach serve the students as well, helping them to sort through the compelling issues of modern life: those of justice, equality, diversity, faith and human dignity.
The Lincoln Center campus is an eight-acre self-contained complex at the corner of Columbus (Ninth) Avenue and West 60th Street.
Our neighbors include Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the AOL-Time Warner Building, the CBS Television Studios, and Central Park.
