Fordham University was founded in 1841 as St. John’s College as the first Catholic institution in the northeastern United States. In 1907 the name was changed to Fordham University. Originally, the college was formed to serve immigrants in New York City and now focuses on exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition. In 2010, The Carnegie Foundation classified Fordham as a high-research doctoral university.
Fordham offers more than 70 majors, minors, and pre-professional programs for undergraduates, as well as graduate degree programs and continuing education programs.
