About Queens University
Innovative Education. Rooted in Tradition.
Define Your YES. Build Your AND.
Amazing things happen at the intersection of challenge and support, of big and small, of personal and worldly. We believe that you shouldn't have to decide between one thing or another. It's no accident that we've created a place where you can have both. A place where you can have it all.
Founded in 1857, Queens University is a small, private, co-ed, masters-level university focused on tailoring dynamic students in and outside of the classroom. In all of our programs, Queens emphasizes active and collaborative learning, meaningful student-teacher relationships, a creative synthesis of the liberal arts with the world of work and the value and necessity of lifelong learning.
Vibrant City. Close-knit Campus.
Our campus is nestled in the historic neighborhood of Myers Park, just minutes from uptown Charlotte. Charlotte is one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the country, and it's also an extended classroom for our students, full of research, service and internship opportunities.
Here, you don't have to choose between an intimate campus or a big city. At Queens, you get a quintessential college experience with the perks of the Queen City.
Move Forward By Giving Back
Our campus is guided by the motto “Not to be served, but to serve." This guides our mission and values, and all that we do to create a culture in which we strive to become philanthropic and effective community members. Yearly mission trips to Guatemala, New Orleans and volunteering for non-profits during Martin Luther King Day of Service are just a few examples of how we serve our community, both local and global.
