Liberal Arts Academy

VAPA QCC Logo

 

 

As a Queensborough student you will focus your education in one of our five nationally recognized Queensborough Academies.

Studying in the Liberal Arts Academy you will learn from professors who are passionate about their subjects – and your future. The Liberal Arts Academy provides students with the diverse skill set many employers in business, industry and government are looking for in potential employees. They recognize the importance of the "employability skills" the liberal arts provides — skills such as speaking effectively, critical thinking, problem solving, information literacy — and the value of a diverse education.

Faculty-led experiences such as service-learning, writing intensive courses, undergraduate research, as well as the potential for cultural events and field trips to museums and fine arts performances will result in a more focused, impactful education.

From the moment you step onto our campus, you are paired with a personal Queensborough Academy Adviser dedicated to helping you reach your academic and career goals. Your Academy Adviser will guide you through course selection, help you understand degree requirements, assist with career planning and support you through your entire time at Queensborough.

Within your Queensborough Liberal Arts Academy, you will have the opportunity to connect in-class learning with real-world experiences while receiving the highest quality liberal arts education.
