College of Arts and Sciences at Queens

Time Honored. Forward Thinking.

In the liberal arts tradition, Queens offers academic programs designed to pique curiosity, engage the imagination, encourage questions, and prepare students for leadership in a complex world. Queens' College of Arts and Sciences strives to serve the university and the community as an intellectual and cultural hub that connects the arts, sciences and humanities. 

The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) believes strongly in nurturing every student's potential, enabling them to thrive in the classroom and into the future. CAS offers a unique educational experience: small classes, challenging and innovative curriculum, research opportunities, sense of community, award-winning faculty -- in the heart of a dynamic city.  A cornerstone of Queens' academic model is the John Belk International Program and a robust internship program, which is another unique edge CAS has over peer schools. 

To meet the ever-changing demands of the professional landscape, CAS has grown to include 13 departments, 31 majors and a wide variety of minors and concentrations.
