Queens College, City University of New York (CUNY)

Queens College Art Department is home to the programs in Art History, Design, Photography and Imaging, Studio Art and Social Practice. Our comparatively low-cost public programming equips students to meet creative challenges of the 21st century through creative exploration, rigorous coursework, and exposure to a wide array of practices. Students have access to a digital Maker Space, bronze-casting foundry, an on-site museum collection, and all MFA students have large private studios spaces. We are a close-knit department within a large university, so our students grow from building strong relationships with their faculty and classmates while getting the opportunity to take courses in a variety of other departments. Located in the heart of Queens, the university combines the benefits a liberal arts campus with all the vibrancy and culture that New York City has to offer. Students benefit from the proximity and resources of the city while receiving the open grassy space and community they need to flourish.
