Yes, many of our Graduate and Doctoral students attend classes part-time and work full-time.  The Nutrition MS program however, suggests full-time attendance since classes are primarily offered during the day.

We suggest that prospective graduate students complete their prerequisites as an “Undergraduate Second Degree” student at a local Community College.  If you are interested in taking them at one of the CUNY campuses, you can utilize the ” CUNY TIPPS ” tool to check equivalencies between courses.
