Queens College


Often referred to as “the jewel of the CUNY system,” Queens College is a place of contrasts: An urban school in a suburban setting, where a large and diverse student body receives personalized attention. This formula has made us one of New York’s premier educational institutions. Our liberal arts, science, and pre-professional programs earn us high rankings in prestigious college guides such as The Princeton Review America’s Best Value Colleges, and our graduates have won prominence in nearly every field. Queens College prepares students to become leaders of our global society by offering a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research. This is a community of high standards and higher ambitions. With a faculty and student population that reflects the diversity of New York City, Queens College provides an unusually rich education. Whatever they major in, our students develop the analytical abilities, communication skills, and broad perspective that will enable them to succeed in any career.
