Majors & Degrees

Canisius College personalizes the needs of its students by offering more than 125 majors, minors and special programs. A recent addition to the curriculum, Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation, gives students hands-on training outside the classroom. Three new majors recently announced are Journalism, Health and Wellness and Creative Writing. The ratio of 12 students to 1 instructor with many classes having fewer than 20 students adds to the quality learning experience.
