College Profile: CUNY Bronx Community College
Bronx Community College serves students of diverse backgrounds, preparations, and aspirations
by providing them with an education that is both broad in scope and rigorous in standards. Our
mission is to give our students the foundation and tools for success, whether they choose to
continue their education and/or enter a profession immediately upon graduation and to instill in
them the value of informed and engaged citizenship and service to their communities.
For the past fifty years, BCC has provided quality education to citizens from the Bronx and beyond. With students from 109 different countries, we are one of the most diverse campuses in New York City. Our welcoming atmosphere and individual support for all of our students makes this a wonderful place to feel comfortable and to learn.
Academic excellence is the keynote that defines our faculty’s commitment to ensure that our graduates will be well-informed, globally aware, engaged world citizens making a meaningful contribution to society.
At BCC we offer a wide variety of Degree and Certificate Programs in majors as diverse as Health Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Community, Legal and Social Services, and the Liberal Arts and Sciences, taught by a caring, nurturing faculty whose sole priority is your academic and professional growth. Most of these majors are easily transferable to four-year colleges, which makes BCC an affordable and realistic first step to a Bachelor’s or even graduate degree. All prepare students to work in entry-level positions. If you choose, there is no end to the exciting journey that begins here at BCC.
At BCC, we are deeply aware of the importance of student life as a vital part of the educational experience. In this regard, we offer a wide range of student activities, with over 30 student clubs and organizations, in addition to many internship opportunities and a wonderfully supportive Office of Career Development. Clearly, the “total” experience of BCC is not confined to inside our classrooms, and we take great pride in this.
The Bronx Community College campus occupies a 50-acre parcel of land on the sites of the historic Henry H.T. Mali and the Gustav Schwab Estates overlooking the Harlem River. There are modern classrooms, lecture halls and laboratories; a student center, athletic fields, tennis courts, a swimming pool, cafeteria, shaded walks and a grassy mall with the Hall of Fame for Great Americans and The Colonnade.
