Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences
Students come to Fairfield's College of Arts and Sciences for good reasons - a distinguished faculty who work closely with you, a beautiful campus that is an hour away from New York, a dynamic core curriculum, and a stunning number of opportunities for civic engagement, study abroad, and hands-on research.
Here you'll find the oldest and largest of Fairfield's 6 schools, where over 2,000 undergraduate and graduate classmates will focus their studies in the College, and where all Fairfield undergraduate students will work on their core classes. Together you'll live and learn, both on and off campus, the arts and humanities, the natural sciences and mathematics, the social and behavioral sciences. And it's where you'll come to learn that Fairfield's 500-year-old Jesuit tradition of academic rigor and personal reflection promotes the kind of deep thinking that lets you see to the bottom of your questions and to the top of your answers. This is the kind of education that stays with you long after your courses are completed and your degree is in hand. It stays with you as you embark on or continue your career, and as you realize your dreams and aspirations - for yourself and for others. It is the foundation of an inspired life.
