The Fordham Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (Fordham GSAS) is an American graduate school within Fordham University, based in New York City, New York.


Established in 1916, the school provides instruction at two of the school's three campuses in the New York City area— at the university's main campus, Rose Hill, located in the Bronx; and the Lincoln Center, located in Manhattan's Upper West Side. The school offers a wide range of master's programs, doctoral degree programs, and certificates in traditional disciplines in liberal arts and sciences, as well as interdisciplinary programs.

The school stresses the advantage of its multiple identities: a graduate school of arts and sciences, a Catholic university, a Jesuit institution, and a school in New York City. The university offers financial aid in the form of merit scholarships, grants, and work study.


The school's self-identified mission statement is as follows: "The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Fordham University fosters the cultivation of knowledge, wisdom, and a deeper understanding of the human condition. Guided by its Catholic and Jesuit traditions, the GSAS aspires to prepare students for teaching and leadership in a global society, by welcoming learners from diverse religious, economic, and cultural backgrounds into full participation in a scholarly endeavor."

Fordham Graduate School of Arts and Sciences currently offers 21 Master's programs, ten Doctoral programs, and nine Advanced Certificates in various disciplines. These include:


Fordham GSAS is located on Fordham's Rose Hill campus, though a few classes are offered at the Lincoln Center campus (primarily in creative writing). Students are offered university housing near campus, but most graduate students find off-campus housing on their own.
