Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday June 3, 2015


Dr. Fernando Arzola, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences recently announced that the New York State Education Department has approved the BA in Philosophy and Religious Studies. The new program, which will launch in fall 2015, will explore fundamental questions of human existence and contemporary global issues from both philosophical and religious perspectives. This will consist of five required courses (15 credits), plus five courses in a philosophy concentration, religious studies concentration, or no concentration option (15 credits).

Students in the BA Philosophy and Religious Studies major will also be required to take Introduction to Philosophy in the liberal arts core. With the approval of the BA Philosophy and Religious Studies, Nyack will discontinue the individual BA Philosophy program and BA Religion program.
