WHAT IS CUNY BACCALAUREATE (CUNY BA)?
CUNY BA is an Interdisciplinary Studies program that works within the CUNY system (it is not a school, but it functions like one). It has been around for over fifty years! CUNY BA is for students who want to design a degree (Area of Concentration|AOC) that is not already offered in CUNY. CUNY BA students take courses in the CUNY departments and/or colleges to fulfill the AOC requirements. So, students will have to be enrolled in a CUNY college to be part of CUNY BA program (that will be the student’s home college).
For Example: A student in CUNYBA would have to create a major that is not “Computer Science” or combine it with another discipline, since Computer Science is already offered traditionally in a CUNY college. A degree in Cross-Cultural Psychology, Imperial History and Postcolonial Studies, Bioinformatics, and many other concentrations can be created.
Some of the benefits of CUNY BA:
|Students can transfer up to 90 credits||Students can take courses in multiple CUNY departments and campuses||Students can start the program while at a CUNY community college|
