About the Department and School
Students in the School of Liberal Arts (SLA) enjoy small class sizes, which lead to active mentorship on the part of our faculty, who direct students to opportunities they might never anticipate before coming here. Students perform original research at the FDR Presidential Museum & Library; present their work at national and international conferences; share their expertise with community partners here in Dutchess County; and complete internships in locations as close as Manhattan or Albany, or internationally through programs in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Through their endless curiosity, hard work, and strategic planning, students--with the help of faculty--prepare themselves to truly make a difference in the world beyond Marist.
