CUNY School of Professional Studies

Background:

Offering bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, dual degrees, undergraduate and advanced certificates, and professional non-degree programs, the CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) presents opportunity for personal growth and job mobility. We provide online and on campus programs that meet the needs of adults who are looking for a seamless way to finish or transition into a bachelor’s degree, earn a master’s degree or certificate in a specialized field, advance in the workplace, or change careers.

Drawing on CUNY’s nationally and internationally renowned faculty and practitioners, as well as industry and education partners, the School’s programs provide opportunities for personal growth, job mobility, greater civic participation, and new ways to advance knowledge.

The School’s growth has been remarkable. Launching over twenty degrees since 2006, enrollment has grown to over 3,000 students in the credit-bearing programs, and the School has seen more growth in its non-credit offerings, with a portfolio of grant-funded programs currently accounting for more than $15 million. In addition, the School now maintains an active Alumni Association and has established the CUNY SPS Foundation that offers multiple scholarship opportunities to students.
