About CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS)

The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) provides online and on campus programs that meet the needs of adults who are looking to finish a bachelor’s degree, earn a master’s degree or certificate in a specialized field, advance in the workplace, or change careers.

Drawing on CUNY’s nationally and internationally renowned faculty and practitioners, as well as industry and education partners, our programs provide opportunities for personal growth, job mobility, greater civic participation, and new ways to advance knowledge.

The School’s growth has been remarkable. Launching twenty-two degrees since 2006, our enrollment has risen by more than 30% in the last four years to 3,300 students in the credit-bearing programs. We serve thousands more who are enrolled in our non-degree and grant funded workforce development programs. In addition, CUNY SPS has a growing and active Alumni network and has established the CUNY SPS Foundation, which offers multiple scholarship opportunities to our current students.
