Dean’s Message

Welcome to the School of Arts & Sciences at Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University.  We are a diverse yet inclusive community of scholars and learners who take pride in educating and forming Franciscan servant leaders, integrated thinkers, faith-filled citizens and highly skilled professionals. 

Whether you are taking pre-clinical coursework or declaring one of our majors, our School is committed to providing an environment that optimizes learning achievement and instills students with a sense of vocation.  We have small online and onsite classes to students from all walks of life and offer programs such as biology, health administration and liberal studies that can serve as pathways to successful careers in healthcare and beyond.
