School of Liberal Arts
Programs and Features
"As an experiential learner, the opportunities made available to me at Marist truly catered to the way in which I learn best. I was able to study in Washington D.C. for a semester, gather public opinion working at the Marist Poll, observe what happens on the ground at the New Hampshire primary, and take on a variety of internships during my studies."
- Meghan Shea '22, Political Science and Philosophy major

A Message from the Dean
When students and their families visit the College, I often suggest that the best way to understand the liberal arts at Marist is to take a walk around Fontaine Hall, the award-winning building that houses our school.
Dr. Martin Shaffer, Dean
