|Motto||Latin: Sapientia et Doctrina|
|Motto in English||Wisdom and Learning|
Established in 1916, the school provides instruction at two of the school's three campuses in the New York City area. The school offers a wide range of master's programs, doctoral degree programs, and certificates in traditional disciplines in liberal arts and sciences, as well as interdisciplinary programs.
The school stresses the advantage of its multiple identities: a graduate school of arts and sciences, a Catholic university, a Jesuit institution, and a school in New York City. They offer financial aid.
The school's self-identified mission statement is as follows: "The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Fordham University fosters the cultivation of knowledge, wisdom, and a deeper understanding of the human condition. Guided by its Catholic and Jesuit traditions, the GSAS aspires to prepare students for teaching and leadership in a global society, by welcoming learners from diverse religious, economic, and cultural backgrounds into full participation in a scholarly endeavor."
Fordham GSAS currently offers 21 Master's programs, ten Doctoral programs, and nine Advanced Certificates in various disciplines. These include:
Classical Languages and Civilizations
Computer and Information Science
Elections and Campaign Management
Emerging Markets and Country Risk Analysis
Ethics and Society
Financial Econometrics and Data Analysis
Health Care Ethics
Humanities and Sciences
International Business and Finance
International Humanitarian Action
International Political Economy and Development (IPED)

Fordham GSAS is located on Fordham's Rose Hill campus, though a few classes are offered at the Lincoln Center campus (primarily in creative writing). Students are offered university housing near campus, but most graduate students find off campus housing on their own.
