Letter from the Dean

The College of Arts and Sciences offers bachelor's degree programs to a wide variety of students. Other academic programs in the College provide opportunities for students to minor in a range of disciplines.

Whether their programs are in the Humanities, the Natural Sciences, or the Social or Behavioral Sciences, students do more than simply accumulate facts or receive training in techniques. Every program is designed to help students integrate their growing knowledge and gain the basis for growth in intellectual and professional integrity.

The smaller size of upper-level courses and the rapport between students and an excellent faculty enhance this educational setting, as does the mission of the university, with its emphasis on mercy, service, justice, and hospitality.

The academic experience in Arts and Sciences programs is vital and powerful. I hope you will explore our departments' Web pages and visit our lectures and events page to come to know us better. We welcome you!

Best regards,

Manning Headshot

Learn More About the Humanities

Watch our latest video featuring current students and faculty from a variety of majors to learn about the versatility of our Humanities programs.
 
The Humanities at Misericordia provide students with valuable, real-world skills and experiences that employers are seeking in a wide range of careers. Our students also receive the personal attention to be successful.

Introducing "What Are You Going to Do with That?"

The National Humanities Alliance has created the podcast, "What Are You Going to Do with That?," a place that explores everyday folks’ decisions to study the humanities as undergraduates and their pathways to fulfilling careers.

The first season features a diverse group of young professionals with humanities backgrounds reflecting on how they’ve applied the knowledge and skills they gained in college. These stories debunk widespread misconceptions about humanities majors’ career prospects by highlighting some of the limitless possibilities for applying humanities knowledge and skills in today’s workforce. 

Each episode traces a unique pathway from a humanities major to careers in law, public health, finance, technology, museums, public relations, and high-end food production while emphasizing a broader theme that applies across humanities disciplines and industries.  View the Season 1 Trailer below or visit the main podcast page to view various episodes.
