Why Wagner? If you are looking for a nationally recognized liberal arts and sciences curriculum — with over 25 majors and programs — a college where more than 80 percent of the students live on campus, a close-knit and collaborative community of faculty and students, and a campus that just happens to be located in the greatest city in the world, then Wagner may be for you!
Prof. Lori Weintrob teaches history at Wagner College using visual images, films and novels to provoke discussion. Prof. Weintrob pushes students to “think outside the box” — then she takes them outside the classroom and into communities.
Wagner’s 105-acre campus sits atop Grymes Hill in New York City’s borough of Staten Island. With breathtaking views of Manhattan, New York Harbor, and the Atlantic Ocean, students get the ‘best of both worlds’ on a small, residential campus community while being only a free 25-minute Staten Island Ferry ride away from Manhattan.
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.
