Discover Your Passion in Arts and Sciences!

Marywood’s Arts and Sciences programs educate and empower talented individuals who write, teach, program, act, move, design, perform, research, question, communicate, and lead. Our programs prepare responsible citizens and in-demand professionals.

Students who choose Arts and Sciences degree programs as their major focus of study open the doors of opportunity to a variety of versatile career paths, realizing meaningful personal and professional lives.

Additionally, all students take classes in our comprehensive Core Curriculum, through which Marywood fulfills its historic mission as a Catholic university and affirms its commitment to the liberal arts tradition. Marywood students think critically, examine values carefully, and act responsibly. They also are challenged to engage in civic responsibility in terms of social justice, unmet human needs, and empowerment of others.


In support of the Mission, Goals, and Core Values of Marywood University, the Insalaco 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. Our programs focus on educating students to research critically, evaluate, and produce creatively.
