Programs of Study


The College offers twenty-eight Associate degree curricula in the liberal arts and sciences and fourteen in career and pre-professional areas. It also offers five specialized Certificate programs, as well as an extensive range of noncredit community service programs. Courses are offered during the day, evening, and weekends in the fall and spring semesters. Day and evening classes are held during summer session, and limited course offerings are available in January.

Transfer programs, which also include ten Dual/Joint Transfer degree programs, are designed for students who plan to continue their education beyond the Associate degree level. Queensborough’s transfer programs are equivalent to the first two years of study in a senior college. Graduates of these programs are prepared to enter a senior college at the junior class (third-year) level.

Career programs provide the academic foundation and specific training to students who plan to begin or advance in employment immediately after graduation.

The curricula with the largest enrollments are:

  • Liberal Arts and Sciences (A.A.)

  • Business Administration (A.S.)

  • Health Sciences (A.S.)

  • Criminal Justice (Dual/Joint A.S./B.A. degree program with John Jay College of Criminal Justice)

  • Liberal Arts and Sciences (Math and Science) (A.S.)

All graduates of Queensborough are eligible to transfer to a senior college within The City University to continue their education. Transfer agreements are also in place with SUNY and many other colleges in the metropolitan area.
