We are currently located at 25 Broadway on the seventh floor, inside the historic Cunard Building (NYPL Landmark), which was once a ticket office for the Cunard Passenger Cruise Ship Line in the 1910s and 20s. We are close to 14 subway lines (A, C, E, J, M, Z, R, W, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), which includes the Fulton Street Transit Center, in addition to several local and express bus routes, the Staten Island Ferry and PATH train service to New Jersey.
An interdisciplinary liberal arts program entails taking a wide variety of courses from the various academic disciplines: Social Sciences, English, Anthropology, History, Art and Art History, Psychology, Media Studies, Science, Labor Studies, Political Science and so on. The liberal arts degree says to prospective employers that you read and write critically, you understand academic research and complex writing tasks, that you are educated in the various academic disciplines, and that you can take charge of intellectual projects.
The Center's academic program is designed specifically for working adults, who are employed full-or part-time. However, anyone holding a high school diploma or a G.E.D. is welcome to apply for admission.
Up to 90 liberal arts credits earned at other fully-accredited colleges may be applied as transfer credits towards the CCNY Bachelor's degree, even if those credits were completed many years ago. Transfer students with Associate Degrees from CUNY Community Colleges are guaranteed a minimum of 60 transfer credits.
