Welcome to the Art Department at Queens College—home to programs in Art History, Design, Studio Art and Social Practice. Our programming equips students to meet creative challenges of the 21st century through creative exploration, rigorous coursework, and exposure to a wide array of practices. We are a close-knit department within a large university, so our students grow from building 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 department 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 space and community they need to flourish.
Whether your interests lay in academic pursuits, honing traditional techniques, or exploring new frontiers, we offer many areas of study for both undergraduate & graduate students.
