    Enhance Your Career Prospects at Queens College

    Since 1937, Queens College has provided educational opportunities to a multicultural, multinational student body. Today, its dynamic, motivated student body includes representatives from over 140 nations, speaking over 83 languages at home.

    With over 100 master’s and certificate programs, graduate study at Queens College will enable you to increase your career potential with new professional skills, while at the same time broadening your intellectual perspective through research and scholarship. Queens College offers degrees and certificates in various fields, including arts and humanities, business, education, math and natural sciences, and social sciences. You’ll receive a quality education at a reasonable cost in a richly supportive learning environment.

    Queens College has adjusted to virtual learning, with online and hybrid courses and flexible class schedules. E-books, online databases and other electronic sources are available to all of our students via our virtual library services. Although professors shifted to online teaching during the pandemic, many continued to conduct research in the numerous labs on campus. For the fall, we expect to offer online and hybrid learning platforms.  

    If you are a Queens College student in upper sophomore or lower junior standing, you may be eligible to enroll in an accelerated master’s degree program. These programs are offered in over 40 areas and allow students to begin taking graduate coursework at undergraduate tuition rates in their senior year.

    Queens College has graduated more New York City school principals, superintendents, teachers, and counselors than any other metropolitan area college, cementing our major role in “educating the educators.” Queens College also offers a Master of Science in Education degree to teach both math and computer science. Students will graduate with the specialized knowledge and skills in math and computer science that are needed to teach these subjects in secondary schools.

    Get educated by the best. Eight out of 10 full-time Queens College faculty have the terminal degree in their field, and 14 have earned the title of CUNY Distinguished Professor. Our faculty of dedicated teachers and scholars includes scientist Dr. Stephen Pekar, whose research involves the “Lost Continent” of Zealandia, and Dr. Kimiko Hahn, an award-winning poet in the college's MFA in Creative Writing program and former president of the Poetry Society of America, as well as numerous recipients of prestigious national and international fellowships, awards, and research grants. 

    The Queens College experience is enhanced by the availability of scholarly resources and state-of-the-art facilities. These include extensive scientific, computer, music, and art resources, as well as the Louis Armstrong Archives, the Benjamin Rosenthal Library, and the many venues of the Kupferberg Center for the Visual and Performing Arts.

    The college’s 80-acre, tree-lined campus has a distinctly suburban feel. It boasts complete sports facilities, including a newly renovated Olympic-sized swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, and a fully equipped fitness center. Its residence hall, Summit Apartments, has a section reserved for graduate students that features fully furnished two- and four-bedroom suites. Also available to Summit residents are study lounges, a fitness center, laundry facilities, high-speed Wi-Fi, basic cable TV, and music practice rooms. Since the start of the pandemic, strict safety measures around campus have been enacted for the safety of our students, faculty and staff. For example, schedules are staggered to limit the number of individuals in each room at any one time, and necessary distance between individuals and mask-wearing is required in all areas.
