Graduate studies combine a solid academic foundation in liberal arts with the real-world, big-city vitality that can only come from New York City. 

Career and special opportunities
Internships play a central role in all graduate programs within the College of Professional Studies, as they offer the critical experiential learning opportunities essential to the academic growth of students. Additionally, every CPS graduate program provides study abroad opportunities, which allow students to spend a semester or several weeks taking courses around the world, notably at St. John’s Rome campus and Paris study location.

Keeping up with tech demands
The College of Professional Studies moved to an impressively renovated space in St. Augustine Hall in 2016. From cutting-edge situation rooms used to simulate attacks on US soil tobusiness incubator rooms for promising entrepreneurs, five new labs at the College are preparing students for some of today’s fastest-growing careers.

“This is an exciting time for the College of Professional Studies,” said Katia Passerini, PhD, Dean of the College of Professional Studies. “These new collaborative spaces and state-of-the-art engagement environments enable our faculty to better educate our students and prepare them for the future.”

The new suite of learning spaces includes the Homeland Security/Emergency Management Simulation Lab, a specialized venue for learning, applying, and practicing the principles of computer and network security—and the first of its kind in the Northeast. Other upgrades include the high-tech Innovation and Design Enhancing the Arts (IDEA) Lab, the flexible and collaborative Computer Science Lab, and the specialized Cyber Security Lab.
