College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Fredonia can give you the foundation of knowledge necessary for today's rapidly changing world.

Fredonia provides students both breadth and depth of educational experiences. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers over 40 majors within the humanities, natural sciences, and social and behavioral sciences. Our programs are the “backbone” of a liberal arts experience; the coursework that composes a university education and provides the foundation for a meaningful life, career fulfillment, and the flexibility necessary for today's rapidly changing world.

 In addition to delivering the core curriculum, we offer a number of programs that lead directly to careers and/or prepare students for trade and professional programs, including cooperative programs with other institutions.
