Faculty

Study with the best.

When you become a student at Brooklyn College, you study with some of the top specialists in their fields. Our faculty have earned the highest distinctions — such as the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize, Emmy Award, Obie Award and National Endowment for the Humanities Award — and have been nominated for Grammy Awards and National Book Awards. They have won fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Guggenheim Foundation, Fulbright Program and Ford Foundation.

Our faculty hail from all over the world and guarantee you a truly global education. Your professor could be a British author with more than 170 plays and 16 novels to his name or a Venezuelan chemist researching the use of metal-based drugs in the fight against cancer and malaria; an American sociologist who was invited by the Korean police to help them fulfill their crowd-control mission while guaranteeing protestors' rights or a Chinese earth and environmental scientist examining urban soil contamination and its implication on urban gardening and human health; a Canadian psychologist who is investigating how the mind and brain process language or a Costa Rican philosopher who writes about the role the creative imagination plays in mathematical reasoning. No matter what subject you choose to study, you will be trained by some of the best minds in higher education who have made Brooklyn College their home.

Because our professors are active scholars who must stay on the cutting edge of their field, we are committed to supporting their dedication and reputation with direct resources to both established and new faculty members. We assist them in obtaining the grants they need to pursue their research with the ultimate goal of sharing new knowledge with students as driven as you.

When you declare a major, our professors will help steer you in the right direction. They become your mentors, helping you to advance your research, earn the scholarship or fellowship you deserve, or apply to first-class institutions, including Brooklyn College, where you can pursue graduate and doctoral studies.

The Brooklyn College faculty is committed to help you become the professional you aspire to be. By the time you graduate, they will have given you a solid basis to join them as a new specialist in your field.
