What Will You Study?

Learn Outside the Lines.

At Iona, build a strong educational foundation with the freedom to shape it around your interests, passions and career goals.

Innovative thinking and a commitment to service underscore our academically rigorous programs across every discipline. You’ll be encouraged to think critically and independently. You’ll gain knowledge to better yourself and better the world.

Here, learning that begins in the classroom doesn’t stay there for long. Take your newly acquired skills anywhere — an internship helping to oversee a $30 million dollar budget, assisting New Rochelle to identify business growth opportunities, or even using your computer science abilities to help improve outcomes for Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs), to name a few.

No matter what you study, we promise you’ll be challenged and supported. You’ll step outside your comfort zone, but you’ll never be alone. You’ll be part of a tight-knit community, but your Iona experience will be uniquely yours.
