United States Universities, Colleges and Schools

 

Whether you are interested in the oldest of humanity s scholarly endeavors, or the hot new fields of tomorrow s global economy, you ll find your place at The City College of New York, a senior college of the City University of New York and the nation s first institution of public higher education.   And you don t have to assume tens of thousands of dollars of college debt to do it!



If you love music, for example, you can study composition with a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer or jazz with an American jazz master.   Or you can specialize in the sonic arts, preparing for a career in broadcast, studio or Internet audio recording in a state-of-the art studio facility unmatched in the region.



As an artist, you can study painting, photography or sculpture, or you can choose the high_tech route, learning electronic/web design in a multimedia arts program under the direction of a nationally known Internet artist.  



At the Grove School of Engineering you can pursue traditional programs in chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering and Computer science or you might want to follow our new interdisciplinary degree program in computer engineering to combine an interest in hardware and software.   Or take advantage of the School s new Center for Biomedical Engineering, which boasts a faculty described by evaluators from MIT as among the best in the nation.



The School of Architecture offers not only the 5-year professional Bachelor s of Architecture, but also two masters programs in architecture and urban design, and one of the few urban landscape architecture programs in the country.



These are just a few of the more than 150 undergraduate and graduate degree programs including thirteen of the City University of New York s doctoral programs that you can find at City College. In fact, CCNY is really a small university, with a College of Liberal Arts and Science and four professional schools: City s School of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture the only public school of architecture in New York City naturally emphasizes the urban experience in the midst of one of the greatest built environments in the world; the Grove School of Engineering and the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education are nationally known; and our School of Education is a major feeder into the New York City public school system.  



Last year CCNY faculty attracted nearly $45 million in grant support from government, non-profit and private agencies.   Our students benefit directly from this rich research capability; City College has the largest student research program in the region, where even undergraduates work with world-renowned faculty mentors on leading-edge research in such areas as cancer and AIDs, laser optics and molecular modeling.   With the new CUNY Honors College at City as well as the New York State Center for Structural Biology on our south campus CCNY students will have more to choose from than ever.  



At City College, you are joining a community of learners and scholars and alumni whose achievements have been and continue to be outstanding.   Nine CCNY alumni have won the Nobel Prize; eleven of our faculty are currently members of the prestigious National Academies of Science and of Engineering; and CCNY ranks 11th nationally in the number of alumni who have gone on to become America s leading business executives.   Today s graduates can be found in top graduate schools, as well as in the fine and performing arts, business, government, architecture, education, medicine and law. Our present students are continuing this record of achievement.   2005 Intel Science Prize winner David Bauer could have gone anywhere, but he chose City College. And last fall another CCNY alumnus, Rhodes Scholar Lev Sviridov, began his doctoral work at Oxford!



Following are just a few of the programs that put City College on the map:



  • Outstanding students from around the nation in the new CUNY Honors College receive full tuition, fees and book allowance for four years; special interdisciplinary seminars using NYC as resource and text; a "cultural passport" providing entr e to the riches of New York City, including concerts, theater, art, science and history museums and galleries - keyed to an enhanced curriculum built around these experiences; and Internships and undergraduate research opportunities and mentoring in the arts, sciences, business and government that will prepare you for the best graduate schools in the nation, and for top careers.



  • Research centers like the College s Institute for Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Lasers, one of the world s leading laser research centers, give students and faculty the opportunity for cutting-edge research, such as groundbreaking progress in developing safer approaches to X-ray mammography and tomography in order to detect tumors without invasive procedures.  



  • The Colin Powell Center for Policy Studies is dedicated to the research and public discussion of social policy issues that affect the quality of life and promote social justice and economic development.   Powell Fellows - students who excel in conflict resolution, community service or foreign affairs are prepared roles as future leaders and policy makers through service learning programs around the city and around the world.   The Powell Center is also play a central role in a program to recruit minorities into the Foreign Service that is being developed with the support of Congressmen Charles Rangel and Jose Serrano.





CCNY is the site of the New York Structural Biology Center, a world-class research facility that brings together eminent scientists to explore life at the cellular level.





New York State is putting a half a billion dollars into new science and architecture facilities at CCNY and the first residence hall in the College s history opens on South Campus in the Fall of 2006.





The Center for Worker Education offers adults who work full-time the opportunity to pursue their degree in the evenings and on Saturdays.



So join The City College of New York and find your future!
