World-class Education and Research

As part of The City University of New York (CUNY), the College of Staten Island (CSI) offers a broad range of academic programs in the liberal arts and sciences, in the professions that lead to associate's, bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees. Additional doctoral programs are also available on campus in collaboration with The CUNY Graduate Center. From enriching undergraduate studies to completing doctoral theses, CSI students are provided with the tools and opportunities they need to earn a world-class education.

CSI students perform research with faculty in every academic discipline on campus, using the College's state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in more than 70 advanced science labs, including the Center for Developmental Neuroscience and Developmental Disabilities, the CUNY High Performance Computing Facility, and the Office of Institutional Research, among others. Many students also enrich their education through internships with leading companies in New York City.
