A Message from the President

Welcome to The City College of New York!

Whether you completed your undergraduate work here at City College or you come to us from another university or country, you are about to embark on a deeper, more committed and rewarding exploration of any one of more than 60 graduate programs. 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. You will also take the unique experiences that you bring to our campus, and learn to apply them to solve real-world issues. You will learn to become experts and to share that expertise with others.

Today, we commit ourselves to providing this same CCNY education under the difficult conditions of the COVID-19 outbreak. As I write this letter, I cannot be sure what new challenges the rapidly evolving health crisis will throw up. But I do know that this City, and our national and global societies, needs the talent inherent in each of you and we’re dedicated to developing those talents under whatever circumstances we will confront together.

To maximize your experience at CCNY, please use this bulletin to familiarize yourself with our graduate programs. Each program offers a rich academic foundation for future success and prepares you to become a leader in an increasingly complex and global world. Under the particular circumstances of the moment, we are working to provide your educational services and supports in both in-person and on-line formats, with 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.

College life outside of the classroom is just as varied and diverse as our student body. You will find endless opportunities to join with like-minded students to pursue your interests in more than 100 student clubs. In particular, I hope that you will bring your concerns and ideas to the graduate student government.

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. As a CCNY, graduate you will join a rich tradition of excellence and achievement, shaping both your own future and the world in which we live.

I look forward to seeing you on the City College campus.


Vince Boudreau, President
