Our facilities and centers are equipped with the technology and resources that reflect the many environments that may work in during your career. With dedicated spaces for scientific research, technological innovation, theatrical performances, interdisciplinary collaboration and competition as well as academic and professional advising, the College of Arts and Sciences ensures that teaching and pedagogy extend far beyond the traditional classroom or lecture hall.
360-degree advising is a critical component of the educational experience within the College of Arts and Sciences. Our dedicated advisers support students throughout their Quinnipiac experience to prepare them for life after Quinnipiac — either in the workforce or in advanced study.
Working with their academic advisors, and in partnership with the Career and Experiential Learning Lab, students are empowered to achieve their educational goals and pursue pathways toward successful careers.
At the Advising Commons, students can:
Explore programs of study, experiential learning and study away options
Create a desired course schedule
Draft a resume and prepare for interviews
The Theatre Arts Center, located just around the corner from the York Hill Campus, is a 12,000-square-foot facility featuring a two-story black-box theater, scenic shop, design studios, classrooms, faculty offices, a student lounge and additional rehearsal space. It is the perfect space for Quinnipiac to stage their world-class productions.
The Quinnipiac Theater program invites students from all majors to get involved in our theater community. Opportunites exist to perform and assist fellow actors throughout the school year and beyond.
The state-of-the-art, 830-square-foot eSports Lab in the Rocky Top Student Center features 24 gaming spaces laid out in four rows of six seats. The layout allows for five-person team gaming as well as a four-person gaming console, a monitor for club members, mobile whiteboards and lecterns positioned around the room and suspended and wall-mounted monitors.
From high-tech workstations to versatile studios, our Game Design and Development Lab empowers aspiring game developers to explore, experiment and bring their imaginative visions to fruition.
Game Design and Development courses are held at one of three labs on campus: our lab in Tator Hall, a new digital lab in the College of Arts and Sciences and the eSports room on Rocky Top. The motion capture lab at the North Haven campus is also available to our students. A new lab, lounge and AR/VR space are currently under construction and planned to open for the 2025-2026 academic year.
Our modular laboratory spaces as well as laboratory classrooms in Buckman Center and Tator Hall foster an environment where students actively engage with the subject matter to push the boundaries of exploration and discovery. From innovative equipment to collaborative setups, these spaces inspire a hands-on approach, propelling learning beyond textbooks.
Many of our courses utilize these labs, including those within anatomy and physiology, anthropology, biology, chemistry and physics. Our classrooms reinforce our commitment to science literacy and exploration and emulate the laboratories used by professional research scientists, archeologists and medical examiners. Whether they are mixing compounds, carbon dating, examining tissue samples or administering stress tests, students in the natural sciences enjoy access to state-of-the-art equipment.
Our facilities, centers and institutes enable you to deepen your understanding of your major and get busy experiencing it. Consider them your passport to interdisciplinary collaboration and exploration. As you work alongside fellow students and professors, you'll gain cultural sensitivity, social awareness and a global perspective along the way.
