College for Working Students

The City College- Center for Worker Education

For over 20 years, working people have come to the Center for Worker Education and found a supportive place to earn their bachelor s degrees.  The center, a small and dynamic extension campus of the City College of the City University of New York, has graduated over two thousand students, including four City College valedictorians.  The center is the place for working students who are serious about their education and career advancement, and who want a college degree backed by a tradition of excellence.  We offer innovative interdisciplinary courses, streamlined administrative procedures, individual advising, and classes that meet just once a week in the evening or on Saturday.

You don't have to pay a lot for a high-quality liberal arts college experience.  Tuition at the center is the same affordable rate as all City University of New York colleges.  And it s the lowest in the city.  You'll get individual academic advising each semester and small classes taught by dedicated faculty who recognize the experiences and maturity of their students.  Graduates of the center have gone on to lead agencies and departments, create non-profit programs, teach school, write books, and win union office. The center s degree program is well respected.  Students of the center are accepted into graduate programs in social work, law, education, public administration, and doctoral programs such as anthropology and English.

A place to grow

Take courses that are relevant to your life, your work, and your passions.  The Center for Worker Education offers more than 70 courses each semester in areas such as literature and communications, early childhood education, public administration, labor studies, cultural studies, and human services.  Your advisor will help you design a flexible and individualized course of study.  Choose from courses like Worker s Rights and the Law, Poetry Workshop, Family Psychology, The Novel into Film, The Sociology of Education, The Age of Revolution, Colonialism and Culture, American Philanthropy.  But your college experience extends beyond coursework--the center publishes a literary journal, hosts an annual scholarly conference, and offers study abroad opportunities in Puerto Rico and The United Kingdom.
