    BMCC Introduces Children and Youth Studies Associate Degree Program

    Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY) offers 47 associate degree programs, all designed to prepare students for rapidly growing careers and industries. The latest of these, Children and Youth Studies, is set to start in Fall 2018.

    “This Associate in Arts program will serve students who envision themselves becoming a child psychologist, pediatric nurse, youth counselor or in another related field,” says Professor of English Chamutal Noimann, who is coordinating the program through the BMCC English Department with fellow English Professor Julie Cassidy.

    “Graduates will have completed interdisciplinary courses in child psychology, children’s literature, anthropology and other areas that speak to the welfare and culture of youth,” Noimann says. “They will have a crystallized and inclusive perspective on children, from birth to adolescence, and be on track to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Children and Youth Studies, through BMCC’s articulation agreement with Brooklyn College.”

    In addition, she says, The Graduate Center, CUNY has recently inaugurated a Master of Arts program in Children and Youth Studies, which creates a unique opportunity for BMCC students to continue their studies on the graduate level—all within the CUNY system.
