With acclaimed programs in theatre, dance, music and the visual arts, and one of the most selective creative-writing MFA programs in the country, Hunter continues to solidify its reputation as a leading public college for the arts.
In fall 2018, the Hunter Theater Project premiered its first professional production—an adaptation of Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya”—delivering performances so acclaimed and popular the show's run was extended twice.
Already the only CUNY college with a dance department, Hunter recently launched a new MFA program in the field. Students can take advantage of two brand-new dance studios while studying in the heart of New York City—one of the world’s great art capitals.
Hunter’s arts partnerships provide special access to performances, exhibitions, internships and events throughout the city. Our new Arts Management & Leadership Certificate Program prepares students for careers in the field.
With renowned faculty and inspiring courses, Hunter’s MFA Program in Creative Writing has developed into a premier training ground for great American writers—and the most selective writing program in New York City.
As a winner of this prestigious award from the American Academy in Rome, Professor Farrin joins a roster of the most acclaimed scholars, artists, writers and composers in the United States and Italy.
With assistance from the Mellon Foundation and support from NYC's Department of Cultural Affairs, Hunter launched a program to prepare students from historically underrepresented communities for leadership roles in the city’s arts and culture institutions.
