Preparing Students for Careers, Service, and Life

The School of Arts & Sciences traces its history back to the founding of The College of New Rochelle in 1904, the first Catholic college for women in New York state. In the decades since, the College has grown and adapted to the needs of generations, as opportunities and demands for quality education for women have expanded.

Today, School of Arts & Sciences alumnae are leaders in many fields, from broadcasting to finance, social work to the arts. Our close network of advisors and mentors open many doors for our students and graduates.

The School of Arts & Sciences offers 23 degree programs, pre-professional programs in law, medicine, and health professions, as well as an honors curriculum, teacher education certification, legal studies, and a community action certificate program.

A Beautiful Campus, Minutes from New York City

Situated in a suburban community just minutes from New York City, The College of New Rochelle provides the best of both worlds — the intellectual, professional, and cultural stimulation provided by the remarkable city and the quiet retreat of a beautiful and safe park-like campus.



Our campus community is small enough that students and faculty know each other on a first-name basis, allowing for many chances to meet informally for discussion, study, and friendship.

The proximity to New York City offers the opportunity for internships and mentoring with recognized leaders in every field, as well as cultural events and activities, from the opera to the ballet, art galleries to inspiring lectures.

It’s an exciting and invigorating combination.
