Diversity in Graduate Admissions
The graduate programs are designed for individuals at different stages of career development. Students returning to school after time spent working or in other pursuits will find a particularly receptive environment. Schedules can accommodate both full-time and part-time students.
City's student body is drawn from eighty different countries and represents some fifty different language groups, bringing an international and cosmopolitan ambiance to the campus. An equal number of men and women make up the graduate student body of approximately 3,000.
Our programs offer a balance of course work, research, training and, where appropriate, supervised field work. Graduate faculty engage with students in classrooms, tutorials, laboratories and independent inquiry to develop skills in creative thinking as well as in the academic discipline, and to build strong and supportive relationships.
