Welcome to the School of Arts and Sciences, the largest and most diverse school on campus. With our sixteen departments, our varied majors, excellent faculty, and multidisciplinary programs, we offer something for every undergraduate student at St. Bonaventure.

We service most of the courses for the General Education curriculum and the Honors Program, and all students, whether in Business, Teacher Education, or Journalism/ Mass Communication, will take many of their classes within our school.

Arts & Sciences is an excellent source for professional training and for graduate school preparation. Bona's students looking ahead to post-graduate study in the health care field may take advantage of the university’s Franciscan Health Care Professions Program and our Center for Law and Society prepares our students for Law School. Students interested in law enforcement and government positions can major in Criminology and our Cybersecurity major prepares students for the high paying jobs in this rapidly growing tech industry..
