Discover what you can do—and who you can become.
As Western New York’s Jesuit college, Canisius offers a holistic experience that teaches you more than facts. You’ll learn to challenge your own assumptions so you can think about the world (and yourself) a little differently.
Make the world your classroom—roll up your sleeves for field research or pack your bags for a global immersion trip. Expand your perspective and gain the skills you need to put your learning into action.
At Canisius, you’ll be prepared to make a difference in whatever field you choose. Explore more than 100 distinctive undergraduate programs, while enjoying the flexibility to create your own unique academic path. Double, even triple, majors aren’t just possible—they’re encouraged.

Don’t just gain technical expertise—learn how to apply your values to solve real business challenges. You’ll also have access to an extensive network of successful business leaders from around the region, many of whom are Canisius alumni.
Make a positive difference as a teacher or counselor. Our programs provide field experience beginning in freshman year, thanks to our partnerships with schools and educational organizations throughout Western New York.
The concepts you’ll learn—and the way you’ll learn them—will broaden your perspective on the human experience. And with a wide range of programs that can be customized and combined, the humanities can take you practically anywhere.
Enjoy opportunities that aren’t usually available to undergraduates. You won’t just learn by studying the work of other scientists—you’ll do your own. You’ll engage in rigorous classroom instruction and intriguing research with real-world applications.
