The Graduate Center at a Glance

Graduate Center The Graduate Center offers over thirty doctoral programs in the arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and health sciences, as well as several master's programs. Our faculty includes 140 core faculty members and 1,700 additional faculty members drawn from throughout CUNY's senior colleges and New York City's leading cultural and scientific institutions. The Graduate Center strives to help students earn their degrees in a timely manner so they can achieve their academic goals and embark on their next steps in reaching their professional and personal goals.
Financial assistance The Graduate Center believes that the financial status of its students upon graduation plays a critical factor in their abilities to pursue the widest range of career opportunities. Nearly all students at the Graduate Center receive some form of financial assistance, with fully half of our incoming students awarded 5-year fellowship packages that include a generous stipend, tuition remission, and health insurance. These packages are comparable to the top public institutions around the nation, and are highly competitive with institutions in the New York metropolitan area. Learn more about tuition rates and fees, find additional sources of funding, and hear from GC students about fellowships and funding.
Professional development Graduate Center students take part in an integrated professional development program, designed to provide the skills, practice, and knowledge required for lifelong career leadership. Teaching practice and research development are woven into the curricula, and seminars, networking opportunities, and support are available through the Office of Career Planning and Professional Development.
New York City Located in the heart of midtown, students can utilize research libraries and learned societies, as well as all the cultural, intellectual, and entertainment options that New York City has to offer. While living in New York City can be costly, the Graduate Center offers affordable housing at 165 East 118th Street, just a quick subway ride away from the Graduate Center.
Digital The Graduate Center’s digital initiatives – collectively called the Digital GC – merge technology with our research and teaching missions. From the moment they enter, students can begin learning about the landscape of the digital humanities and the digital social sciences through the many resources and opportunities offered, such as the Digital Praxis Seminar. Students gain full immersion in digital humanities tools, skills, methodologies, and scholarship.
