Since 1957, Bronx Community College of the City University of New York has been building on its vision to graduate students who are prepared to live within, profit from, and contribute to a 21st century global environment marked by diversity, change, and expanded opportunities for learning and growth. Located on a 43-acre, tree-lined campus in the University Heights section of the Bronx, BCC offers more than 30 academic programs that prepare students for careers and to continue their education at four-year colleges. BCC provides students with enhanced learning opportunities through study abroad programs, presents an increasing emphasis on the STEM fields: science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and opens doors to engage in breakthrough research at the Center for Sustainable Energy. The College offers evening and weekend classes for adults who work full-time, and BCC provides a high quality, low cost, on-campus Early Childhood Center for students juggling classroom demands with those of parenting. Students also benefit from the school's newest architectural gem, the North Hall and Library, a blend of classic design with state-of-the art classrooms, group study rooms, and up-to-date information technology. BCC offers all this and more on its beautiful campus, America's first community college campus designated a National Historic Landmark.
