Students and Faculty
FCLC has a student body of approximately 1700, with small and personalized classes, in keeping with the Jesuit tradition of caring for each student as an individual.
The college welcomes transfer students. Each year many students receive credit for course work completed at other universities and go on to complete their bachelor's degrees at FCLC.
Many graduates of the College continue their education at outstanding medical, dental, law, graduate and other professional schools across the United States and abroad.
A strong full-time arts and sciences faculty of about 140 is based at Lincoln Center and is augmented with colleagues from Rose Hill. Adjunct professors bring to classes special professional expertise.
Many members of the faculty are well-known and established scholars, authors and editors in a wide range of academic disciplines. Others are active practitioners including painters, photographers, filmmakers, poets, composers, and Obie-winning actors and directors.
Faculty from theatre, English and communication and media studies collaborate to offer a minor in creative writing.
