College of Arts & Sciences

Welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences is at the core of who we are and what we do here at Le Moyne. It is the academic center and intellectual hub of our Jesuit institution, committed to transformative education rooted in the liberal arts. Arts and Sciences is home to the Core Curriculum, an array of engaging academic majors, and nationally recognized scholars and artists. Our talented faculty and staff maintain an unwavering commitment to delivering a rigorous, high-quality, student-centered education in the Jesuit tradition.

The College of Arts and Sciences is equally committed to maintaining a warm and supportive learning environment for its diverse student body. The College has long been a source of inspirational teachers and superb mentors who believe in the personal success of our students. Our faculty and staff's goal is not only to educate individuals who will excel in their chosen fields, but also to develop ethical, conscientious, and globally-focused citizens who will promote a more peaceful and just society.

We welcome your interest in the College of Arts and Sciences at Le Moyne!

Veronica Ung-Kono Fighting Poverty from Afar

Veronica Ung-Kono ’18 spent the summer advocating for the world’s poor from her desktop. A political science and communications major with a pre-law concentration, she interned with The Borgen Project, a nonprofit organization that lobbies for quality education, access to proper health care, and enough food for the world’s poor.

Jason Luscier Le Moyne's Bird Man

Jason Luscier, assistant professor of biological sciences, begins his workday early – around 4:30 a.m. He is up with the birds – literally. Luscier regularly traverses the City of Syracuse as the sun is beginning to rise, exploring the parks, commercial regions and residential neighborhoods, his eyes and ears sharply attuned to the avian life around him.

Tiny Home for Good A Place of Their Own

A place of their own – for homeless men and women in Syracuse, there is no greater wish than that. Yet for too many a home of their own seems hopelessly out of reach. Andrew Lunetta ’12 is expending all of his energy to make that dream a reality.
