Daemen College is a private, nonsectarian, co-educational, comprehensive college in Amherst, New York, chartered to award both undergraduate and graduate level degrees. Located in a safe and attractive suburban setting, Daemen offers convenient access to one of the country’s most vibrant regions, spanning Buffalo-Niagara, the Great Lakes, and a cross-border corridor with Ontario, Canada, less than a two-hour drive from cosmopolitan Toronto. Daemen’s identity is clear. We insist on a healthy and strategic balance between a liberal arts foundation and solid career preparation. That means a future physician assistant will also know something about Shakespeare. Moreover, our competency-based core curriculum ensures that the well-arounded Daemen graduate has effectively mastered skills like critical thinking, creative problem solving, literacy in multi-media technology, affective awareness, moral and ethical discernment, and civic responsibility.
