The Villanova Experience in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences creates intellectually inspired, morally grounded graduates who have a global perspective and are prepared to lead, innovate, solve problems and work collaboratively in any endeavor.

Our students’ academic journey is both challenging and rewarding—enabling students to discover truth and meaning through knowledge exploration that goes beyond subject matter expertise to the realm of insight and wisdom.

At CLAS, student success occurs both inside and outside the classroom. Internships at top organizations prepare our CLAS graduates for careers that require creativity, analytical skills and communication expertise. As a result, our alumni are shapers of our economy and culture.

“My NBCUniversal internship has allowed me to fully immerse myself in the entertainment industry. From working alongside high-ranking researchers to leading key assignments, I have greatly enhanced my skills in consumer insight.”

Conducting mentored research with our outstanding faculty can be a transformational experience. From the time students start at Villanova, they can work side-by-side with faculty who are advancing knowledge that has a real-world impact.

“Research fascinates me because it is a way to explore the unknown and contribute to scientific knowledge. After graduation I hope to enter an MD-PhD program and to become a research-clinician specializing in oncology and cancer research.”

– Joey LaMorte ’23 CLAS, Biochemistry
