Whether you are an adult returning to school for your undergraduate degree or graduate degree, The College of New Rochelle can guide you to success. Since the College was founded more than a century ago, we have provided more than 40,000 graduates with the solid educational foundation – the wisdom for life – essential to aid them in realizing their dreams. Through our four Schools – School of Arts & Sciences (undergraduate for women), School of New Resources (undergraduate for adults), School of Nursing, and Graduate School -- we remain well positioned to do that.
In no small measure, CNR owes its growth and success to a highly committed faculty and administration. The faculty consists of dedicated scholars and teachers who have been recognized for excellence in teaching. Ninety percent of our faculty holds doctoral degrees or the highest degree available in their field. No graduate students or teaching assistants teach undergraduates. Faculty advisers are available to students for consultation and guidance in academic and career planning. To supplement and complement its faculty, the College invites adjunct professors, artists, business executives, and social workers to teach courses in their areas of expertise. With a student to faculty ratio of only 10 to 1, at CNR, professors know our students personally and care about their individual goals.
The School of Arts & Sciences offers a more traditional four-year degree program where women flourish. Students choose from over 25 programs -- including art, biology, communication arts, education, psychology, and social work -- take leadership roles in the classroom and extracurricular activities and are surrounded by excellent women role models.
The School of Nursing’s undergraduate and graduate programs have earned nationwide recognition for integrating holism into nursing practice and education and for excellent academic and clinical resources and innovative teaching methods. Programs include a four-year BSN program, as well as accelerated programs for RNs seeking a BSN and for those with degrees in other fields (an excellent option for those seeking to change careers), and a graduate program for nurses seeking to advance their careers as nurse practitioners, nurse educators, clinical specialists in holistic nursing, and more.
Students gain strong clinical experience through the School's collaborative relationships with over 100 of the most sophisticated health care institutions in the New York metropolitan area, including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Medical Center, Our Lady Mercy Medical Center, Visiting Nurse Association, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, and Jack D. Weiler Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
The advanced degree programs offered at the Graduate School have been helping working professionals enhance their skills for advancement, make career changes and re-enter the workforce for almost 40 years. Our programs prepare individuals for a variety of careers in the helping professions. We offer a broad range of master’s degree and certificate programs in art, career development, communications, education, gerontology, mental health counseling, school psychology, and more.
The School of New Resources is a leader in adult higher education. The School has graduated women and men from diverse social and economic backgrounds who have gone on to pursue advanced degrees and to enjoy successful careers in education, law, business, psychology, art, social services, and the ministry. Understanding the needs of adults, students may take classes mornings, evenings, and on weekends right in their own neighborhoods (and earn credit for life experience) at any of our campuses in New Rochelle (the main campus of The College of New Rochelle) or in New York City (Brooklyn, Co-op City, Harlem, the South Bronx, or at DC-37 Union Headquarters).
