Wagner College, a four-year private college, is known for its innovative curriculum connecting liberal arts education to practical learning experiences throughout New York City. Set on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and New York Harbor, Wagner’s 105-acre park-like campus is only a ferry ride away from the cultural, intellectual, and professional heart of America—Manhattan.
At Wagner, students “learn by doing” through a challenging, broad-based liberal arts curriculum that is anchored in the real world. Through the Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts, students become involved in fieldwork directly related to their courses in their very first semester. Learning communities help students connect to their studies, to their professors, and to each other. Internships—required for all students—provide valuable real-world experience before graduation. Wagner’s small class sizes and experienced professors, who teach both introductory and upper-level courses, are other features of its nationally acclaimed curriculum.
Beyond the classroom, Wagner offers a full spectrum of student activities—including more than 90 student clubs and organizations—that not only enrich the undergraduate years but also serveto prepare students for the challenges of life after graduation. As an NCAA Division I institution, Wagner offers 11 men’s and 15 women’s sports. Intramural programs and the College’s 93,000- sq. ft. sports and recreation center provide all students with athletic opportunities.
