We’re located in New York City, which offers an amazing wealth of experiences and entertainment. Manhattan is just a 25 minute ride away on the free Staten Island Ferry. As a Wagner student, you’ll attend world-class arts performances and visit world-renowned museums; you’ll cheer for the famed professional athletic teams at our doorstep, and you’ll follow in the footsteps of those who came before you to make their mark on places like Wall Street and Times Square.
Our students benefit from the College’s innovative curriculum, The Wagner Plan. Combining a solid foundation in the liberal arts with practical and applied experiences like internships, with a commitment to service learning and community, the Wagner Plan has been recognized by many as a unique approach to learning.
Wagner’s traditional, urban but pastoral campus is an oasis of calm and reflection in a dynamic urban environment. Wagner’s 105 tree-filled acres on Staten Island, once owned by the shipping-line Cunards, offer breathtaking views of New York Harbor, and make for a great place to live and study. Were it not part of New York City, Staten Island would be among America’s larger cities, and it is home to many restaurants, movies, shops and cultural activities. Come visit us!
We look forward to seeing you on campus, and hope that you will decide, like we did, to ‘be part of the city.’
