The College of Arts and Sciences at Notre Dame de Namur University offers strong programs in the departments of Art, Art Therapy Psychology, Clinical Psychology and Gerontology, English, History and Political Science, Modern Languages and Cultures, Music and Vocal Arts, Natural Sciences, Philosophy and Religious Studies, Psychology and Sociology, and Theatre and Dance.

Our College focuses on the personal as well as the professional development of the University community. An important element of our General Education is the education and training of students in the development of interpersonal skills, empathy and respect for others as well as self-reflection and self-awareness.

The College of Arts and Sciences seeks to engage students in understanding the significance of their own humanity and to maximize their potential for creativity, critical thinking, spiritual development, social responsibility and global citizenship. Students acquire necessary skills to achieve intellectual, moral and aesthetic excellence; they recognize the importance of lifelong learning, community service and the University's commitment to peace and justice. The College promotes the arts by providing cultural events of the highest caliber that engage students and faculty in the cultural life of the region.
