About The College of Professional Studies

The College of Professional Studies offers programs at both the Queens and Staten Island campuses, where students can experience a flexible yet challenging curriculum enriched by internships, community service and international study programs.

Students may work toward a four-year (baccalaureate) degree, a two-year (associate) degree, or a concentrated certificate course of study. The College also offers an associate degree in liberal arts and combined undergraduate/graduate programs. Although many of the programs are highly specialized, we focus on providing students with a balanced curriculum that incorporates career-development skills with a solid liberal arts foundation.

In addition to affording valuable, real-world exposure and hands-on experience in various fields of study, The College of Professional Studies provides students with the opportunity to participate in various professional societies, career nights and extensive alumni networking activities – all of which help bridge the gap between college life and future careers. Resources such as the University's official newspaper, the Instructional Television and Radio Center, computer editing and video labs, as well as WSJU, the university radio station, furnish a professional environment in which students can hone their skills and enhance their theoretical knowledge.
