The largest of the three academic divisions at Le Moyne College
Welcome from the Dean
Le Moyne College's commitment to a transformative education rooted in the liberal arts and sciences is expressed in the first sentence of its mission statement. For this reason, the Division of Arts and Sciences is the academic center and intellectual hub of an outstanding institution of higher learning. It is home to the Core Curriculum, an array of engaging academic majors, and nationally recognized scholars and artists. Our talented faculty and staff maintain an unwavering commitment to delivering a rigorous, high-quality, student-centered education in the Jesuit tradition.
The Division of Arts and Sciences is equally committed to maintaining a warm and supportive learning environment for its diverse student body. The Division has long been a source of inspirational teachers and superb mentors who believe in the personal success of the students. Our faculty and staff's goal is not only to educate individuals who will excel in their chosen fields, but to develop ethical, conscientious, and globally focused citizens who will promote a peaceful and just society.
Thank you for your interest in the Division of Arts and Sciences.
Christopher M. Jones, Ph.D.
Dean of Arts and Sciences
NEW Inaugural Magis Lecture
7:30 p.m., Monday, April 21
Grewen Auditorium, Grewen Hall
On the eve of his retirement, after 40 years of dedicated service to Le Moyne, Robert Flower, Ph.D., will present the inaugural Arts and Sciences Magis Lecture. He will reflect on his unique teaching style – which has won him the Rev. Msgr. A. Robert Casey Teacher of the Year award twice during his time here. Colleagues have said that students who graduated without having had a course with Dr. Flower had missed an exceptional opportunity. We hope you’ll have the opportunity to hear Dr. Flower, one last time, at Le Moyne.

The City of Light became a classroom for a group of English and sociology students who traveled there to learn more about the history and culture of this rich, diverse capital. It was an intellectual as well as a personal journey for the students. Over the course of 10 days, they made the stops you would expect of visitors to Paris, including the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. But they also ventured off of that well-worn path, taking in the Basilica of Sacre Coeur, the Museum of the Middle Ages, and the Arab Institute. Beyond Paris, some of the students visited Lourdes, where the Blessed Virgin Mary is said to have appeared, and Chartres, home to one of Europe’s most beautiful gothic cathedrals.
