About the CUNY Graduate Center

Post by FieldsMedalist » Tue Jul 19, 2022 6:34 am

I would like to know some infornation about the Graduate Center. I understood that there is no one campus of the school, it consists of all public universities in New York. So the Mathematics faculty there is big and consists of all the departments in these public schools. I am interested in the work of some mathematicians there. That's why I'm considering applying their. I will greatly appreciate if anyone can answer the following questions:

1) If I want to apply for Math PhD, what campus will I be in? Does it depend on the campus where my potential advisor is in?

2) Where will I take my courses? Since the department is not in one place, how do students manage this? Are students allowed to take them in multiple campuses and keep going from one campus to another. But I don't think this is efficient or logical.

3) Or is there only one campus for the graduate center and all graduate classes are taught there? But then how do graduate students manage their teaching duties, since there are no undergrads here. And is it good to be seperated from undergrads?

4) How much prestigious is graduate studies in Mathematics at CUNY considered? Especially in Number Theory.

The faculty of the Graduate Center work at the Graduate Center. Some of them have appointments at other state colleges, but they also work at the Graduate Center in NYC.
