Message from the Dean

“An education grounded in the liberal arts and sciences provides students with the intellectual experiences and skill development necessary to achieve self-actualization.  Students in St. John's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences engage in inquiry across the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.  Students become critical, creative, and practical thinkers, problem solvers, engaged global citizens, and lifelong learners.  A liberal arts and sciences education at St. John's is foundational and transformative.  Plus it's marketable -- our placement rate is nearly 95% within six months of graduation.”  - Gina M. Florio, Ph.D., Interim Dean, St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
