Brooklyn College is an integral part of the civic, urban and artistic energy of New York and uses the entire city as a living classroom that broadens our students' understanding of the world around them.
For more than 80 years, the college has been attracting a wide variety of motivated students — many of them immigrants or the children of immigrants who wish to better their lives through a superb education. They come because of the college's renowned faculty of academics, professionals and artists who are among the best in their field. They know they will be learning on a campus considered one of the most beautiful in the country, with well-equipped facilities, studios, smart classrooms, and production and practice rooms — all with a highly affordable tuition.
Brooklyn College has a student enrollment of 17,390 students — 14,115 undergraduates and 3,275 graduates who come from 150 nations and speak 105 languages.
The college offers 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the creative arts; humanities; social, behavioral and natural sciences; mathematics; education and business. Admissions criteria have become increasingly selective over the last decade, with a mean SAT score of 1134 for 2011. More than 4,000 students received bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as advanced certificates, at our last Commencement Exercises
