Muse Scholar Program gets off-campus kudos


New York's Huntington Public School District featured an article on its website about Muse Scholar Marie Coneys (Class of '16), who praised Hunter and the Muse Scholar Program for their unique approach to arts education. Click here to read the full article, or read an excerpt below:

"The Muse Scholars [sic] program highlights the arts across many mediums and focuses on supplementing the typical liberal arts college experience with an artistic twist, Ms. Coneys said. She's enrolled in a series of general-education required courses this semester, including Calculus, English, Intro to Cinema and Explorations in the Arts, a class specific to the Huntington alum's art program.

'My favorite, by far, is Explorations in the Arts,' said Ms. Coneys about her courses. The class has studied dance (students even took a dance class), photography (including field trips to the Met), illustration (students participated in a drawing class at the Society of Illustrators) and enjoyed dinner with award-winning author Colum McCann, who penned Let the Great World Spin. 'Although it sounds like a lot for one semester, we haven't even covered half of our curriculum yet,' said the Huntington grad about Explorations in the Arts."
