A Message from the President

Welcome to The City College of New York! 
You have embarked upon an incredible journey at a remarkable moment in our nation’s history.  For almost 175 years, the City College of New York has provided its students with an excellent education that prepared them for success in a broad range of careers and endeavors.  Today, we face, collectively, an entirely new set of challenges as we come slowly out of the COVID-19 pandemic and begin the task of rebuilding our society. CCNY, from its very inception, was based on the proposition that we would never be as strong, democratic or dynamic as we need to be unless we harness the talents of the whole people.  Never is that vision more essential than in times of great national need. Our city, and our national and global societies, need the talent inherent in each of you and we’re dedicated to developing those talents under whatever circumstances we will confront together. 

At CCNY you will be taught by internationally renowned and accomplished faculty in diverse fields, ranging from science, engineering, and architecture to humanities and the arts, education, and social sciences. We have state of the art laboratories for scientists and engineers, studios in which artists and musicians can hone their craft, and a new medical school that just this year graduated its first class of doctors to serve on the front lines of the pandemic. 

Part of our responsibility as educators and advisors is to awaken your curiosity, expand your knowledge, strengthen your skills, provide leadership and engagement opportunities, and prepare you for careers that will help you change the world for the better. This is our obligation and our privilege. Under the particular circumstances of the moment, we are working to provide these services and supports in both in-person and on-line formats, to give you as much flexibility and security as possible. In making these efforts, we will continue to be guided by the twin imperatives of delivering you an excellent college education and preserving the health and safety of the whole campus community. 

To enhance your experience at CCNY, please use this Bulletin to familiarize yourself with our undergraduate majors and areas of specialization. Our rich curriculum offers opportunities to not only chart your own career path, but to explore areas of interest across the fields of science, technology, social justice and the arts. College life outside of the classroom is just as varied and diverse as our student body. 

Use our valuable resources to maximize your City Experience. From innovation and entrepreneurship to cutting-edge research, scholarship and creativity, a City College education is a vital force for progress in the lives of our students and in our communities. 
I look forward to seeing you on the City College campus. 


Vince Boudreau, President
