Purchase College 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. We combine rigorous coursework in the liberal arts and sciences with world-class conservatory programs in the visual and performing arts. Think Wide Open: You’ve heard us say it, now here’s how we live it. We’re the eccentric cousin of the SUNY family. We’re the dreamers, the DIYers, the future of arts and culture, of the humanities and the sciences. We live on a collaborative and sustainable campus, and we work to create the kind of society we want to see in the world. We respect others, ourselves, and our surroundings as we grow into the people who will make real change someday. We’re inclusive, LGBTQ-welcoming, and always actively seeking new ways to foster diversity in our academic programs and on our campus.
Purchase College is located in the center of 500 acres of open fields and sprawling forests, about 30 miles (or a short train ride) north of New York City. The School of Art+Design at Purchase College is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Northeast, providing state-of-the-art software and hardware specifically geared to the demands of professional design and art making.
