What Students Are Saying

3.35 Average Rating
The teachers and workload aren't that rigorous. The workload that they provide to the students is just enough so that the students can retain the information but not enough for the students to feel pressured and challenged.
Michaela from New York, NY
The science department is one of Queens' strongest and rigorous.
Michelle from Jamaica, NY
The work load can become a little overwhelming. However, you are here to learn. This assists you in organization, time management, and academic skills.
Kemaul from South Richmond Hill, NY
The academic programs here at Queens aren't that tough. Time management plays a key role in any course.
Ria from Hollis, NY
The classes are hard; but hey it's college! The professors make the material much more interesting.
Jessica from Jackson Heights, NY
Not every Professor is going to give you the same workload, so it's hard to give just one rating. Overall I would say that the classes are more on the higher end of assignment difficulty. As an English major, the classes I have been taking are very dependent on writing assignments (whether they are 4 page essays or a short response due the next class) and a lot of reading (whether they are novels or short articles). You really have to plan ahead and not leave everything until last minute or you're going to get overloaded with work and you will see your grade suffer because you aren't giving the assignments your best.

I'm in Macaulay Honors College in addition to being a regular student at CUNY Queens College. Both schools' curriculums are challenging. They force you to think and develop your thoughts and ideas. Every professor is different though, so always ask upperclassmen or check out RateMyProfessor to check how rigorous their classes will be! As a Performance and Psychology double-major, I can attest to the rigor of both the Music and Psychology Departments' rigor as well.
