About the School of Arts & Sciences

The College of New Rochelle School of Arts & Sciences is a college that prepares undergraduate students for successful careers through a robust liberal arts foundation, a strong focus on real-world skills and experiences, and a distinctive curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and individual empowerment. As a Catholic institution, we remain dedicated to the Ursuline ideals upon which CNR was founded in 1904. A commitment to service, social justice, and lifelong education informs the student experience at SAS and strengthens the sense of community and belonging that enriches our campus.
