Story
Tagline
CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies is an individualized University-wide undergraduate (bachelor's) degree program.
Introduction
The CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies is an accredited program that allows self-directed, highly motivated students to create and design their own majors within CUNY. 

How does CUNY BA work?
These majors, also known as "Areas of Concentration (AOC)" are created with classes that can be taken at one (or more) CUNY campus(es), while remaining a student at his/her home college. #CUNYBA

  • The student designs the Area of Concentration (AKA major) alongside a faculty mentor. The students also get a dedicated CUNY BA academic advisor who helps them (regarding requirements, degree plans, credit checks, etc.) along the way. 

The CUNY BA is great for those who don't find their preferred major / field of study in CUNY. This is the chance to create and design a major that suits the student's passion. Take a look at some sample Areas of Concentrations HERE.

There's no fee to apply to the program. However, you do have enroll in a CUNY college to start. Learn more about the requirements for CUNY BA HERE

Come to an information session and learn more about CUNY BA!


Mission
Established 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.
