For this week’s Professor Profile, we take a look at Professor Robert Field of the Art Department:

I have been teaching at NCC since 2002. My areas of expertise include Illustration, Graphic Design, Computer Graphics, Drawing, and 2D Design. I was inspired to share my knowledge with the students at NCC from my experience learning from my graduate school instructor at Syracuse University, the Late Great Prof. Murray Tinkelman. If I could bring even a fraction of the level of enthusiasm, knowledge, and love of subject matter that Prof. Tinkelman brought to his students, I figured I might be doing something right and for the right reasons. I'm just trying to honor his memory to the best of my ability and pay it forward.

I have had so many great experiences at NCC. There are too many to list. The students, for the most part, are dedicated and eager to learn. The group of students that I have this semester are exceptionally wonderful and hard working -- especially considering the challenges associated with a remote format. I am proud of what they have accomplished this semester.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
