Departments & Majors

Education at Wagner is more than a series of classes and requirements. We connect you to dedicated professors who help you solve real-world problems. We guide you in the lab and the studio, then onto the streets of New York City and the world. Our learn-by-doing approach gives you a sense of social responsibility as well as strong intellectual and practical skills that lead to successful and satisfying careers. Welcome to the Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts.
