The Weissman School of Arts and Sciences is a school with a small college atmosphere and the resources of a major public university. Weissman has a dynamic, collegial, and nationally recognized faculty of more than 200 full-time members organized into 13 departments. It offers personalized, supportive attention to its 2,600 majors, as well as unique programs linking the arts and sciences with business and public affairs. Weissman is one of three schools comprising Baruch College, which has become the largest and most diverse school of its kind in the country.
The faculty and staff of the Weissman School are committed to the most ambitious aims of undergraduate education in the arts and sciences: to encourage the growth of our students as citizens, as future professionals, and as human beings. This commitment informs all of our efforts to promote the acquisition of superior communication and quantitative skills, the development of critical and analytical abilities, and the cultivation of aesthetic, ethical, civic, and cross-cultural awareness.
Whether students come to us intending to major in one of our own subjects or major in business or public affairs, a belief in the value of learning in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences is at the core of our mission as a school. It shapes the experience of a Weissman education. Our faculty members exemplify this commitment in their own work, which includes distinguished contributions to their fields, and we aim to create an environment in which research, scholarship, and creative activity can flourish.
