Core Curriculum

The Core Curriculum is a set of requirements that all Siena students must complete. The Core includes a diverse and flexible plan of study that prepares students for responsible participation in an increasingly diverse and complex world, and prepares students for further learning, both in the sense of continuing to learn after they leave college, and in the sense of being prepared to do more advanced work in an area of specialization.

Honors Program

In keeping with the Mission of Siena College, the Honors Program is designed to foster the intellectual and aesthetic growth of its students through personal interaction with faculty and staff both inside and outside the classroom. The Honors Program expands opportunities to develop critical and creative thinking; to gather, synthesize, and analyze evidence in making reasoned and informed judgments; to appreciate cultural diversity; and to enhance written and oral communication skills.
