Purchase College, SUNY, offers a unique education that combines programs in the liberal arts with conservatory programs in the arts in ways that emphasize inquiry, mastery of skills, and creativity. Our graduates contribute to the arts, humanities, sciences, and society.
Purchase College’s four renowned arts programs function collaboratively as the School of the Arts. Humanities and science programs, both traditional (for example, pre-med) and interdisciplinary (for example, environmental studies) are administered within the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The college's newest unit, "Film and Media Studies" includes programs (for example, new media) that encourage students to take courses across areas and schools. Each student's academic career culminates in a senior project that takes the form of a research project, scholarly thesis, exhibition or performance. Whether a day, evening, part-time, or weekend student, the wide array of courses and access to faculty creates ample opportunities to meet individual needs and objectives.
