Message from Dean Jeffrey M. Peck
Welcome to the Mildred and George Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, a vibrant intellectual and cultural center. With 13 outstanding academic departments, numerous interdisciplinary programs, and a wide range of majors, the Weissman School is an essential part of the Baruch College experience, whether as the home of your chosen major or for the required Tier III Minor. We're proud to offer students a rich and diverse array of music and theatre in the Baruch Center for the Performing Arts.
“Arts and sciences are the bloodstream that course through the entire body of knowledge and through our civilization.”
'39, LLD [Hon.] '82
Small enough to provide personal attention from faculty and staff and large enough to offer an exciting choice of courses and activities, the Weissman School provides students with a learning environment that is supportive yet challenging. At Weissman, we encourage students to think hard, write well, and speak clearly about the new knowledge acquired in the humanities and social and natural sciences – from the performing arts to mathematics, from journalism to environmental studies. The home of traditional university core liberal arts, the Weissman School also offers exceptional opportunities to broaden one's education and expertise through links with the Zicklin School of Business and the School of Public Affairs.
The Weissman School’s priority is to train students academically, while acknowledging the practical implications of that knowledge in a more competitive global environment. Above all, we hope that the Weissman experience opens up new ideas and opportunities for students as educated citizens of the world.
