Fordham University

New York - United States

Overview

Founded in 1841, Fordham University is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition. It was established as St. John’s College by the Right Rev. John Hughes, Coadjutor-Bishop (later Archbishop) of New York, on old Rose Hill Manor in the village of Fordham, then part of Westchester County. St. John’s College was the first Catholic institution of higher education in the northeastern United States. The name Fordham is derived from the Anglo-Saxon words “ford” and “ham,” meaning a wading place or ford by a settlement. The College’s name was officially changed to Fordham University in 1907.

Today, Fordham 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 more than 60 majors in liberal arts, sciences, and business, and complete a rich core curriculum that spans literature, history, science, theology, philosophy, and the arts.

With its two distinctive residential campuses, Jesuit traditions of academic excellence, and the great city of New York as its partner, Fordham offers students virtually unlimited opportunities for learning and personal growth.
