Hunter College, the second oldest college in The City University of New York, offers master’s degrees in more than 50 fields of study and doctoral programs – some at Hunter exclusively and some in cooperation with the CUNY Graduate Center. We have graduate programs in the arts, sciences, languages and literature – as well as in the professional fields of accounting, education, health professions, nursing, public health, social work and urban planning – and all are considered exceptional. Currently about 5,600 students enroll in these programs.
One of our most important areas – now, as throughout our more than 140-year history – is teacher education. The School of Education today offers a broad range of graduate programs designed to prepare teachers, counselors and administrators for practice, leadership and innovation in education.
The Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, the School of Health Professions, and the School of Urban Public Health are nationally recognized for new approaches to teaching, research and service in health care. The School of Nursing provides a wide array of accredited programs designed to prepare students for leadership positions in health care (including the new Doctor of Nursing Practice, DNP); the School of Health Professions offers an outstanding master’s program in speech-language pathology and a doctorate in physical therapy. A new master’s in medical laboratory management is available in the School of Arts and Sciences, department of medical laboratory technology. The School of Urban Public Health, sharing a beautiful new facility in East Harlem with the Silberman School of Social Work, offers environmental and occupational health, community health education, epidemiology, nutrition and public health. A new dual degree, MSW/MPH is now available. Through the City University Graduate Center, doctoral degrees in audiology, nursing science and public health are offered.
The Silberman School of Social Work, now located in its new home in East Harlem, offers several flexible program options leading to the master of social work degree. It is one of the top graduate social work schools in the country. Its faculty is renowned both for training leaders and innovative thinkers in social work and for providing expert service to New York’s multicultural community. Through leading-edge course work, opportunities for challenging field experience, method-based training and a practice-centered education, the Silberman School provides unequaled opportunities to learn and excel in our dynamic urban environment.
The School of Arts and Sciences has a first-rate roster of graduate programs in the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, sciences and mathematics. Throughout the long history of graduate studies at Hunter, graduates of these programs have gone on to elite doctoral programs and distinguished careers. Enhanced by excellent performance facilities, research laboratories, and art studio space, our programs define the frontiers of knowledge in areas as diverse as biotechnology, creative writing and social research, among many others. We offer doctoral degrees in the sciences in cooperation with the CUNY Graduate School. With Hunter’s central location on Manhattan’s East Side, the city’s major museums, concert halls and galleries are within easy walking distance, as are famed biomedical research facilities, which offer extraordinary opportunities for collaborative study and research. A new location for Hunter’s famed MFA in studio art brings Hunter downtown to Hudson Street in TriBeca.
Hunter’s faculty includes many distinguished scholars, educators, and creative artists, all of whom play major roles in New York’s academic, cultural, civic and educational life. With over $50 million annually in research grants and awards, Hunter’s faculty is internationally respected for its creativity, energy and scholarship.
