Miami: Culture, Diversity, and Sustainability   


In order to reflect CUNY's decision to hold distance-learning courses, BMCC Au Pair Experience will be continuing in an online format. Online courses will be held for the same number of credits as our in-person option. Please email with questions.


Miami: Culture, Diversity, and Sustainability

Miami is home to people from across the globe who help sustain its many multicultural neighborhoods and drive its amazing art scene. In this class, you will study how a modern city can continue to thrive economically and artistically while also becoming environmentally sustainable.

After your online session, you will travel together through the city of Miami in person (outdoors and masked). After, students will use Miami as a model and craft sustainability plans with their home cities in mind.



Some things that students have said about Miami:

"It was an amazing experience! I loved how class & outside connected with each other! The lecturer interacted so good with everyone & it was a fun time having him as a leader."

"I highly recommend this class to others Au Pairs who want to know more about Miami and explore around the city!"

& Thu, Mar 3: 6pm–9pm

Please note that your pre-assignment will be emailed to you one week before your first online class session. You will receive details on how to log-in to your online class sessions one day before the start of the course.

Once the final online class session has concluded, you will have one week to submit your independent coursework and final assignment to your teacher.

Students are required to be present during all live online class sessions. However, your independent coursework can be completed at your leisure before the deadline one week after your online class ends. We wanted to create flexibility in completion as we know many au pairs now have increased work hours due to COVID-19.

Students who require their certificate sooner than outlined above should request their final assignment in advance by contacting BMCC at Please note that BMCC needs two days from the date a student submits their final assignment to issue an educational certificate.

If you have any questions at this time, please email us at Please continue to stay safe.
