Academic Departments & Programs

Comenius envisioned a learning community with its programs of study grounded in the world. Moravian follows his still-progressive vision. As the sixth-oldest college in the nation, Moravian has also demonstrated a historic commitment to the concept of a liberal arts education. The College believes that the educated person has studied a variety of fields and has pursued one or more areas in depth.

Moravian offers programs of study leading to four baccalaureate degrees—Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science in Nursing—in the following academic areas.
