Alvernia offers you a range of academic programs with a learning approach that is grounded in the real world. As a student you will have access to more than 50 majors and minors in nearly every field to prepare you for your career of choice.

With a foundation in the liberal arts tradition, our curriculum will help develop your critical thinking skills and encourage you to explore your own ideas. It’s an approach that produces well-rounded individuals who are ready to succeed no matter what path they choose. For students who seek greater intellectual challenges, our honors program is ideal. It’s designed to encourage academic excellence and facilitate the exchange of ideas between students with different interests and in different disciplines.

To better serve our students, the university expanded and restructured its academic programs by establishing a four-college model: the College of Business, Communication, and Leadership (CBCL); College of Health Sciences (CHS); College of Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences (CHESS); and College of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (CSTEAM).
