Campus Coordinator: Suzy Shepardson, Bldg 1A, Room 101

Established in 1971, the CUNY BA/BS program is a small, University-wide alternate degree program intended for self-directed, academically strong students who have well-formulated academic and career goals. Students who are admitted to the program work on an individualized area of specialization with guidance from a CUNY faculty member who agrees to serve as a mentor. Students in this alternate degree program must also satisfy a core of general education requirements. Although students in the program are matriculated at one CUNY college, they are free to take courses at any of the other CUNY colleges. To be eligible to apply, students must have a clear academic goal and must have completed at least 15 college credits with a grade point average of 2.50 or higher. The CUNY BA and BS degrees are fully accredited and are awarded by The City University rather than by an individual college. The program operates under the auspices of the CUNY Graduate School and University Center. Additional information may also be obtained at www.cunyba.cuny.edu.
