Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), formerly known as Audrey Cohen College, is a college located at 431 Canal Street in New York City. The college also maintains offices at its previous location, around the corner, at 75 Varick Street.
After a reorganization completed in September, 2007, MCNY consists of two schools, The Audrey Cohen School for Human Services and Education, and The School for Management. Together, the schools offer undergraduate and graduate programs in Human Services, Education, Emergency Management, Business and Media Management.
The highest degrees offered are master's degrees. StateUniversity.com categorizes MCNY's "Special Learning Opportunities" as: Distance Learning, Study Abroad, Weekend College, and Teacher Certification.
The college follows founder Audrey Cohen's Purpose-Centered Education philosophy. In contrast to colleges and universities that organize the school year according to semesters, MCNY refers to each term as a "purpose". Each term's purpose, or unifying theme, drives the coursework for the term, which includes a Constructive Action (CA). CAs are unique clinical seminars in which students complete projects that combine classroom study with research-fieldwork projects that integrate lessons learned in all of the term's courses with hands-on experience.
U.S. News and World Report's "Best Colleges 2010" roundup categorizes MCNY's admissions process as "less selective."
