About CUNY Registered Academic Programs
About Registered Programs
This section of CUNY TIPPS provides information on both the undergraduate and graduate academic programs offered at the City University of New York. The programs listed here are those officially registered by the New York State Education Department and their titles are those approved by the State Education Department.
What is a Registered Program?
In a majority of cases, these programs are the same as "majors." However, options within registered programs, such as "Creative Writing," offered within a college's registered program in English, will not appear. For these options, should they exist, and for other information about the registered programs, we have provided links to the colleges' websites.
The following information is provided for all registered programs:
We have used common abbreviations for the degrees. These are:
On occasion, you will see two degrees appear next to a program. For example, B.A.-M.A. is a joint program leading both to the Bachelor of Arts and the Master of Arts. At the completion of both programs, the B.A. and M.A. degrees are awarded.
Accessing Registered Academic Programs
The screen entitled Registered Academic Programs Offered At CUNY has three pull down menus. For all menus, you may select either one entry or “All.”
The Program Areas menu appears in the left pull down menu. Programs may appear under more than one program area. For example, if you want to find programs leading to a bachelor's degree in the teaching of Spanish, any one of the following program areas may be selected: “Spanish, “ “Education: Teaching,” or “Foreign Language.” All programs in the teaching of Spanish will appear regardless of which program area you select.Education Programs
While most education programs lead to certification by the State of New York, not all do. Therefore, it is very important to look at the column entitled Education Certification to determine if the program you are looking at is one that leads to State certification.
Programs with Bracketed [ ] Information
Many academic programs are offered in a joint relationship between two colleges. Information presented in brackets indicates the aspects of the program which are offered by the second of the two colleges.
The registered program information can be displayed in three ways: sorted by college, by degree or by program. To change the sort, use the sort selection function which appears both at the beginning and at the end of the list of programs. Click on the way you want it to appear; the information will be sorted for you.
Every reasonable effort is made to keep the registered program information in CUNY TIPPS accurate and up-to-date. Neither the individual colleges nor the CUNY Central Administration can be held liable for errors in or omissions from this on-line service.
