About Wagner College
A private liberal arts college of approximately 2,000 students, Wagner College is known for its innovative approach to higher education that unites deep learning and practical application. Founded in 1883, the College enjoys an ever-increasing national reputation for employing "high-impact" educational practices such as learning communities, internships, research with faculty, and service learning.
Our students and employees benefit from the close-knit, nurturing environment of our beautiful, traditional campus, as well as our immediate proximity to all of the opportunities of one of the world's greatest cities: New York. Wagner College is actively engaged in the many diverse communities of the City, and we welcome people from all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, social classes, ages, geographic locations, and languages.
Wagner College enrolls approximately 1,800 undergraduate students in 30 majors and 300 graduate students in select master's programs, plus one doctoral program, the Doctor of Nursing Practice (inaugurated in 2014). The student-to-faculty ratio is 14:1.
The Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts
The Wag...ner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts is a nationally recognized, comprehensive undergraduate curriculum. Implemented in 1998, the Wagner Plan combines the traditional liberal arts with integrative learning, reflective practice, and the incredible professional opportunities offered by New York City to ensure students graduate with the practical experiences and connections, multidimensional perspectives, and flexible leadership abilities necessary to succeed in an ever-changing world. Heavy emphasis is placed on learning communities, which are sets of thematically linked courses enrolling a common cohort of students. Students complete three learning communities before graduation: First-Year, Intermediate, and Senior. The First-Year and Senior Learning Communities also include an experiential learning component and a reflective tutorial. Learn More About the Wagner Plan: http://wagner.edu/academics/undergraduate/.
New York City
Wagner College is located in Staten Island, one of the five boroughs of New York City. Known as the greenest borough because of its more than 10,000 acres of parkland, Staten Island feels far away from Manhattan's hubbub. Wagner College's location on Grymes Hill, a neighborhood of historic estates, offers breathtaking views of New York Harbor as well as a safe and peaceful work environment. Yet, Wagner College is intimately tied to the life of New York City and the diverse neighborhoods of Staten Island. Manhattan is accessible via the world-famous Staten Island ferry, and the College offers a free shuttle service between the ferry and the campus. Brooklyn is directly connected to Staten Island via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, and three other bridges link the island to New Jersey.
