Daemen College is a liberal arts college[1] in Amherst, New York.[2][3] It is a non-sectarian four-year liberal arts college that also offers graduate programs in business, healthcare and education.


Daemen was established in 1947 as Rosary Hill College for women by the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, founded by Mother Magdalen Damen. The College graduated its first male alumnus in 1968, and changed its name in 1976 to honor the foundress of the order which founded Rosary Hill College.


There are more than thirty undergraduate programs and six graduate programs at the school.

Daemen College has a competency-based core curriculum in which students are expected to master critical thinking and creative problem solving, information literacy, communication skills, affective awareness, moral and ethical discernment, contextual competency, and civic responsibility. Also notable is Daemen's integration of service learning into the Core Curriculum.



Daemen College teams, the Wildcats (formerly the Warriors), are part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), primarily competing as a member of the East Coast Conference. Formerly, the Wildcats were part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), primarily competing in the now-defunct American Mideast Conference. Men's sports include basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis and track & field; while women's sports include basketball, cross country, soccer, tennis, track & field, triathlon and volleyball.
