The Graduate Center (GC) is the focal point for advanced teaching and research at the City University of New York (CUNY), the nation’s largest urban public university. Devoted exclusively to graduate education, the GC fosters pioneering research and scholarship in the arts and sciences, and trains students for careers in universities and the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. With over 35 doctoral and master’s programs of the highest caliber, and 20 research centers, institutes, and initiatives, the GC benefits from highly ambitious and diverse students and alumni — who in turn teach hundreds of thousands of undergraduates every year. Through its public programs, the GC enhances New York City’s intellectual and cultural life.
Through the Graduate Center’s Digital Initiatives (GCDI), students can begin learning about the landscape of the digital humanities and the digital social sciences from the moment they enter the institution. The Digital Praxis Seminar, open to all GC students and designed for those just entering the GC, offers full immersion in digital humanities tools, skills, methodology, and scholarship that enhance research and teaching. It is the first of many resources and opportunities — labs, centers, programs, data repositories, fellowships, and grants — that empower students to propose innovative digital projects, many of which have secured funding.

The GC’s 15,000 alumni have gone on to work in education, industry and business, government, nonprofits, and other fields. The Office of Career Planning and Professional Development (OCPPD) supports current students in reaching their career goals through individual career counseling; professional development courses and workshops; discussions on career planning strategies; and much more. Find details at www.gc.cuny.edu/careerplanning.
The Office of Financial Aid provides students with the financial resources and information they need to successfully complete their graduate study. Learn more at www.gc.cuny.edu/financial.
