The School of Professional Studies (SPS), housed within the CUNY Graduate School and University Center, serves New York City’s dynamic marketplace through the provision of timely, innovative, and high-quality programs of study. Drawing on CUNY’s nationally and internationally renowned faculty and practitioners, as well as industry and education partners (American Museum of Natural History, the Lincoln Center Institute for Arts in Education, Nurture New York’s Nature, Inc., CUNY’s Creative Arts Team, and CUNY’s John F. Kennedy, Jr. Institute for Worker Education), SPS offers graduate and undergraduate certificate and degree programs in a wide range of fields, including CUNY’s first online master’s and online baccalaureate programs.

In addition to the wide array of academic and professional programs, the School of Professional Studies partners with organizations to help them develop and deliver customized educational programs to improve the skills of their workforce and the quality of their services.

Enrollments have grown to over 2,000 students in the credit-bearing programs, and the School has seen additional growth in its noncredit offerings, with a portfolio of grant-funded pro- grams currently accounting for more than $6 million. In addition, SPS now maintains an active alumni association, has established the SPS Foundation, and occupies its own dedicated space.
