Step 1: Choosing Your Program

Graduate study is open to qualified students who possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university or the equivalent from a foreign institution and an adequate background in the field of study that they wish to pursue. Normally, the equivalent of an undergraduate major in the field is required, but the final judgment of preparation remains with the departments concerned and the Divisional Dean. Graduate credits used to meet undergraduate degree requirements cannot be transferred to a graduate program.

For each advanced degree, there is an approved course of study that meets University and department requirements. Department requirements are listed in the City College Graduate Bulletin. A brief summary of the unit requirements for each degree is presented below.

Each candidate for a master’s degree in Engineering or Computer Science must complete at least 30 credits as approved by the department and the Dean. A Master of Science Degree (M.S.) is awarded to students who do not have a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering. Students who have taken graduate work at other institutions may receive up to six credits (nine with the approval of the Committee on Course and Standing) provided that the material is equivalent to a graduate course taught at the college and that it was completed with a grade of B or better within a five-year period preceding matriculation at The City College. The Computer Science Program is only open to students with a computer science baccalaureate degree or extensive undergraduate course work in the field of study. Click here to apply now!
