York College has reorganized all of its academic department into three Schools: the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Business & Information Systems, and the School of Health & Behavioral Sciences. Each of the Schools focuses on a set of related programs and departments, and gives expression to the College’s mission.

The School of Arts & Sciences provides students with the opportunity to obtain an excellent education in the arts, humanities, mathematics, and the natural sciences. The School of Business & Information Systems introduces students to all of the fundamental business disciplines, and then allows them a wide range of choices when selecting their major field of study. Finally, the School of Health & Behavioral Sciences provides a diverse student population with programs that have received national recognition and professional accreditation.

Through the three Schools, York College offers B.A. and B.S. degrees in over 44 different liberal arts, sciences, and professional majors, including English, History, Spanish, Music, Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Journalism, Physician Assistant, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Nursing, Aviation Management, and Communications Technology, as well as the combined B.S./M.S. in Occupational Therapy. The College is distinguished not only for offering a variety of majors and minors in almost every discipline but also for bringing professional programs in business, accounting, information systems management, teacher education, generic nursing, social work and allied health sciences to traditionally underserved populations. York College also offers certificate programs in a variety of fields that include: mortgage finance; youth work; survey research; and Spanish for professional purposes. In addition to the CUNY Aviation Institute, York College is home to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA)
Northeast Regional Laboratory.
