CCNY was the first free public institution of higher education in the United States and has been committed to the dual goals of accessibility and academic quality since its founding in 1847. The College campus occupies thirty-five tree-lined acres along Convent Avenue from 131st to 141st Street in the Borough of Manhattan. It has an international reputation for its ability to promote scholarly excellence in students of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds and economic circumstances.
Over 12,000 undergraduate students and 2,500 graduate students are enrolled. Its colleges and schools include the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences with its divisions of humanities and the arts, social science, science, and interdisciplinary studies; the Spitzer School of Architecture; the Grove School of Engineering; the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education; and the School of Education. CCNY's engineering, architecture and biomedical education programs are unique within the City University. The College offers more than 115 undergraduate and graduate majors including doctoral degrees in biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering.
