Where Intellect, Culture, and Career Opportunities Converge

Fordham University education blends a rigorous curriculum with the resources, culture, and energy of New York City. Fordham students intern at the United Nations, are mentored by CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, and earn prestigious Fulbright Fellowships to continue their studies and service around the world. As the Jesuit University of New York, Fordham is a place where talent and intellect are nurtured and dreams are achieved.

Academic excellence
Students choose from more than 60 majors in the liberal arts, sciences, and business, completing a rich core curriculum that spans literature, history, science, theology, philosophy, and the arts—all grounded in key Jesuit principles. Special offerings include honors programs, research symposia, study abroad, dual-degree programs with Fordham’s graduate schools, and pre-professional programs in law and medicine. 

New York is our campus
Fordham draws students from around the globe who want to live and learn while immersed in the diversity and opportunity of a world capital. Students benefit from an extensive internship program that includes 3,500 New York–based partner organizations with opportunities in business, communications, education, government, health care, biomedical research, law, the arts, and other fields. 

Fordham has two residential campuses. Rose Hill, adjacent to the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo, is a quintessential green, leafy college campus featuring beautiful Gothic architecture. The Lincoln Center campus is located in the cultural heart of Manhattan, a landscaped urban setting near Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Central Park, Columbus Circle, and the headquarters of major international organizations. On campus, more than 225 clubs and 22 Division I athletic teams offer students the opportunity to explore their passions.

With two distinctive residential campuses, the Jesuit traditions of academic excellence and care for each student, and New York City as its partner, Fordham offers students virtually unlimited opportunities for learning and personal growth.

Recent employers
From global financial leaders to the top media companies in the world, our students gain full-time employment at a variety of industry-leading organizations, thanks to our strong relationship with recruiters and companies throughout New York City and beyond.
