The City University of New York has had a self-designed degree in place for 40 years: CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Individualized Studies. 500 students are enrolled and we have over 7000 graduates. Students’ successes in getting into excellent graduate schools, often with significant funding, as well as landing jobs related to their self-designed degrees is extraordinary. For the right student – focused, mature, interested in putting together a major working closely with a faculty mentor that differs from the University’s standard offerings – this is an incredible degree route.
