Jeffrey Fagen, Ph.D., Dean, St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Founded in 1870, St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the cornerstone and oldest division of St. John’s University. The College offers three undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Fine Arts. Although the College has always emphasized the liberal arts tradition, we offer more than thirty majors and forty minors in the arts and sciences, business and education. The school’s graduate division, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, provides numerous programs leading to master’s and doctorate degrees.

While these programs form the foundation for a superlative education, St. John’s offers more: a top – notch faculty, a curriculum designed to expand your horizons and prepare you for a rewarding career, and a student population that is one of the most diverse in the country.

Study abroad possibilities, cross – school offerings with the Tobin College of Business, plus professional courses at the College of Professional Studies are also available. St. John's College undergraduates have the best of many worlds, including the advantages of a strong liberal arts core married to a truly "option – oriented" curriculum. In addition, the College has established strong internship/externship programs with businesses, government agencies, museums and other institutions outside the University. These and other attributes make St. John’s College an exciting and diversified branch of the University. We invite you to learn more about all we have to offer!
