Fordham University: College at Lincoln Center
Founded in 1841, Fordham University is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 15,000 students in 10 schools in its four undergraduate colleges and six graduate and professional schools. Under the leadership of its President, Joseph M. McShane, S.J., Fordham University draws students from across the country and the world who want to live and learn while immersed in the diversity and opportunity of a world capital. Students choose from majors in liberal arts, sciences, and business, and complete a rich core curriculum that spans literature, history, science, theology, philosophy, and the arts.
Established in 1968 on eight landscaped acres adjacent to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Fordham College at Lincoln Center is a close-knit intellectual community of faculty and students located in the heart of New York City. Across town from the United Nations, the campus is minutes away from Broadway and Central Park. At Fordham Lincoln Center, students live and learn in a global capital of culture, finance, technology, fashion, and so much more.
This year Fordham College at Lincoln Center will launch several exciting new programs, including a major in humanitarian studies and a minor in fashion studies. In addition, the Gabelli School of Business has expanded to the Lincoln Center campus, offering a bachelor's degree in global business with four concentrations in dynamic emerging industries.
Fordham students are active learners—what the Jesuits like to call contemplatives in action. In that tradition, students will find that internships are a vital part of life at Fordham. They can choose from a diverse group of more than 2,600 corporations, nonprofits, and organizations, many just a short walk from campus.
"The primary objective of The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is to help provide a broad range of services to the student, who because of academic and economic circumstances, would otherwise be unable to attend college, yet has the potential and desire to obtain a college degree. HEOP is sponsored jointly by the State Education Department and the College."
"HEOP is funded jointly by the University and the New York State Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program and programming activities are supported, in part, by a grant from the New York State Education Department."
