in 1971, The City University of New York Baccalaureate for Unique and
Interdisciplinary Studies (formerly known as the CUNY Baccalaureate
Program) provides students with a flexible, academically challenging way
to earn their degree while giving them a major share of the
responsibility for the content of that degree.
The program has three goals:
1. to encourage students to take advantage of the extraordinary
resources and learning opportunities available at the City University’s
18 colleges and at The Graduate Center;
2. to allow self-directed,
academically able students to design an individualized program of study
that complements their academic, professional, and personal goals; and
3. to foster intellectual exploration and responsible educational innovation.
