Fordham students serve as interns at the United Nations and are mentored by CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. They win Google Lime Scholarships and capture prestigious Fulbright Fellowships, continuing their studies and service around the world. As the Jesuit University of New York, Fordham is aplace where talent and intellect are nurtured and dreams are achieved. 

Academic excellence 
Students choose from more than 60 majors in the liberal arts, sciences, performing arts, and business, and they complete a rich core curriculum that spans literature, history, science, theology, philosophy, and the arts. Special offerings include honors programs, research symposia, study abroad, dual-degree programs with Fordham’s graduate schools, and pre-professional programs in architecture, law, medicine, and other health professions. 

The innovative International Political Economy program explores the complexities of the world’s increasingly interdependent and politicized economies from an interdisciplinary perspective. Taking advantage of its location in a world center for the arts, Fordham offers a BFA in Dance through a unique partnership with The Ailey School. Additionally, the program in Theatre provides the finest training with a faculty of leading New York City professionals. 

Fordham students regularly win prestigious scholarships and fellowships—Fulbright, Gates Cambridge, Goldwater, Truman, and National Science Foundation, to name a few. The Office for Prestigious Fellowships is designed to shepherd students through the application process. 

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. Benefiting from an extensive internship program, students can choose from 2,600 New York–based partner organizations with internship opportunities in business, communications, education, government, health care, biomedical research, law, the arts, and other fields. 

New York City not only provides unparalleled internship and career advantages but also a never-ending list of things to see and do, from Broadway theatre, museums, and music to major league sports or a bike ride through Central Park. 

Two distinct locations
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 oasis near Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Central Park, Columbus Circle, and the headquarters of major international organizations. 

Both campuses are easily accessible by public and private transportation. Enjoying the academic and student life of both is convenient with the University’s Ram Van service, which operates between the two campuses.

More than 180 student organizations offer a remarkable range of activities. Student life programming also capitalizes on the resources of New York City and a mosaic of cultural experiences. An extensive athletics program includes 22 varsity sports and a range of club and intramural sports. Reflecting the values-centered education that is a Fordham hallmark, students engage in approximately one million total hours of service each year, locally and in distant corners of the world.

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