Welcome to the School of Professional Studies at City Tech!
Programs in our school prepare students for direct entry into careers in health care, business, human services, hospitality, legal studies, and education. We offer both Associate and Baccalaureate Degree programs.
As a student you will have professors who are practicing members of their disciplines, and who have extensive industry experience and contacts. Our adjunct faculty are working in the field already – in hospitals, agencies, schools, businesses, courts, and hotels and restaurants.
New York City is used as a “living laboratory” in our courses. Students do
clinical rotations, internships, field trips, special projects, and volunteer
work in all our programs.
Our health students have clinical experiences in area hospitals, such as Methodist , Maimonedes, Woodhull, and Kings County Hospitals in Brooklyn, and Bellevue, New York, Mt. Sinai, Roosevelt, and Columbia Presbyterian Hospitals in Manhattan. Our hospitality students have internships in hotels and restaurants throughout the city, under the mentorship of experienced professionals in the industry. Vision Care and Dental Hygiene students work in the College’s clinics, serving patients and gaining professional experience. Human Services students work in community agencies throughout the city. Legal studies students have internships in law offices, courts, and city agencies. Education students work in public schools in New York City.
Outside activities are an important part of our programs. Hospitality students participate in events such as Harvest in the Square, Brooklyn Eats, and the Grand Central Partnership. They work in soup kitchens and prepare holiday meals for community groups. Nursing and Dental Hygiene students go into area schools and Head Start programs to teach children. Radiography and Nursing students participate in Brooklyn’s march against breast cancer. Accounting students provide tax preparation assistance through the Internal Revenue Service VITA program. These are just a few of the many ways our students help in the community and gain additional experience.
Faculty are intensely involved scholarly activities, from research projects, to professional practice, to participating in competitions and exhibitions. There are opportunities for students to participate in research with their professors. Many faculty are active in their professional organizations at the local, state, and national level.
If you are interested in any of our programs, please check out the web pages and contact the departments directly. We are always interested in talking to potential students about our programs.
If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
