About Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

In the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Fordham University, the life of the mind is built on–and enriched by–the very act of reciprocity implied in mentorship.

Fordham’s faculty members are approachable, caring, and rigorous in their expectations, both of their students and themselves.

Fordham’s professors are distinguished scholars who manage tens of millions of dollars in grant awards and publish approximately 500 monographs, books, book chapters, and articles each year. Such accomplished professors have a profound impact upon their students, and their accomplishments overflow into the lives of students.

Fordham graduate students have the opportunity to invest in others in ways that foster the development of skills that cannot be learned in the laboratory or library alone, skills that find their being in human relationships, including:

  • Professional development workshops
  • Student-run professional conferences
  • Teaching undergraduate classes in their respective fields of study
