FLUSHING, NY, November 2, 2012–Queens College has been recognized in the 2013 edition of U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges by its appearance on the top 10 list of Top Public Regional Universities–North. Other CUNY schools on this list include Baruch and Hunter. Queens College also enjoyed an overall 18-point rise in its category of Best Regional Universities-North.
U.S. News & World Report ranks nearly 1,400 schools nationwide in a variety of categories. “Regional universities,” like the national universities, provide a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs; the difference is that the regionals offer few, if any doctoral programs. The 625 regional universities are ranked against their peers in one of four geographic regions––North, South, Midwest, and West.
Queens College offers more than 60 master’s and certificate programs. Students may also take courses in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology towards PhD degrees offered through doctoral programs based at CUNY’s Graduate Center. As it celebrates its 75th year, Queens College reaffirms its commitment to providing a premier liberal arts education to generations of bright, ambitious students. From graduate and undergraduate degrees, honors and pre-professional programs to research and internship opportunities, its over 20,000 students can realize their potential in countless ways, assisted by an accessible, award-winning faculty.
Located on a beautiful, 77-acre campus in Flushing, Queens College enjoys a national reputation for its liberal arts and sciences and pre-professional programs. Each year the Princeton Review also cites Queens College as one of the nation’s 100 “Best Value” colleges, thanks to its outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages, and relatively low costs.
