Upper Level Courses

Macaulay students take most of the courses related to their major at their CUNY home campus, including high-level and honors courses. In addition, they take a set of four required seminar courses created just for them. These seminars are designed to develop leadership and critical thinking skills of Macaulay scholars.

Macaulay also creates other challenging and unique courses for its students: some designed to address academic topics of interest to our students, others to provide a forum for students to learn from highly-regarded visiting professors.

Current Macaulay students: If you are interested in registering for any of these courses, click the “View Course” link to fill out the interest form to start the process.
