CAS Mission Statement

Rotunda ceiling
In support of the Mission, Goals, and Core Values of Marywood University, the  College of Arts and Sciences aspires to foster in its students a conscious understanding of the complexities, enduring themes, and problems that are central to human experience. 

  • We prepare students for a lifetime of achievement, leadership, and service by offering courses in our majors and in the Core Curriculum that provide them with the knowledge and understanding necessary to respond effectively to the needs and challenges of an interdependent world. 
  • We enable students to think critically, examining relationships between the individual and the community, between the self and society, between the person and the world.
  • We encourage students to develop fully their ethical sensibilities and to contribute to the well-being of our common humanity.
