Outstanding academics. Stellar faculty. Prestigious internship and study abroad opportunities. State-of-the-art campus facilities. These are just some of the reasons why Brooklyn College graduates have an edge in the global marketplace. Situated in New York City’s most interesting borough, Brooklyn College is a nationally recognized liberal arts institution at the center of the great artistic, business, financial, and governmental resources of the New York City metropolitan area. The college has a lush twenty-six-acre, park-like campus, where students pursue bachelor’s and master’s degrees in more than 130 programs in humanities, education, the arts, business, and the sciences and social sciences. Students may also participate in the doctoral programs of the City University of New York (CUNY), including campus-based programs in the sciences.
Brooklyn College is nationally renowned for its core curriculum which gives our students the kind of in-depth, comprehensive education of elite colleges, but at a fraction of the cost. Through its First College Year program, Brooklyn provides intense academic and social support for entering students to facilitate their transition to college. Beginning in the summer with Pre-Freshman Immersion, incoming students take special workshops and seminars. Comprehensive and ongoing student orientation and advisement continue throughout the first semester. Priority registration and specialized counseling strengthen the opportunity for a successful academic start to the undergraduate experience. Brooklyn College is consistently ranked by the Princeton Review as being among the top fifty in the nation for “most bang for your buck.” In 2009, the college guide particularly cites Brooklyn’s “very serious and admirably diverse undergraduate population,” its excellent liberal arts curriculum, and the high caliber of its faculty.
Brooklyn College has over 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students who are engaged not only in their studies but in the outside world. They study abroad, participate in prestigious internships in some of the country’s best companies, non-profits, artistic, and government agencies. And they represent the most diverse city in the world, with more than 130 different languages spoken among them.
Brooklyn College awards the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.), Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.), and Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degrees.
Brooklyn College is located in the residential Midwood section of Brooklyn. The many different cultures of Brooklyn contribute to the wide ethnic diversity of the college’s student and teacher population. The availability of a wide variety of New York City cultural events and institutions enriches students’ educational experience. Subway and bus transportation to all points inside and outside the borough is easily accessible from the college.
The college has outstanding science facilities, including dozens of on-campus laboratories that support academic work in such fields as biology, computer science, and health and nutrition sciences. Cutting-edge technology is also available for such programs as performance and interactive media arts.
Outside of the classroom, students are supported by the most technologically advanced library in CUNY, which houses more than 1.3 million volumes; by more than 1,300 public access computers; by widespread WIFI access; and by a Web portal that provides a wide variety of personalized services. Brooklyn College also maintains state-of-the-art facilities to support instruction: technology-enhanced classrooms and lecture halls; large-scale, comfortable computer labs with college-wide access, open from sixteen to twenty-four hours each day, with free printing and more than one thousand Dell, Apple, and Sun workstations; more than fifty discipline-specific computer labs; and video-conferencing facilities. Additional special libraries are available for art, music, classics, and speech communication arts and sciences.
The college sponsors fourteen NCAA Division III athletic teams and numerous intramural teams. Volleyball, tennis, and basketball are favorite sports. Last year, the men’s basketball team won the division championship.
One of Brooklyn College’s most stellar programs is the Honors Academy. The Academy is comprised of six units that offer academically talented students the opportunity to take enriched courses and seminars and to participate in research and internships. The programs are: the Brooklyn College Scholars Program; the Coordinated B.A.–M.D. Program; the William E. Macaulay Honors College; the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship; and the Minority Access to Research Careers and Honors Engineering programs.
