The cornerstone of the Gallatin School is its individualized approach to education. Gallatin puts the individual student first. With the support and guidance of faculty advisers, students design unique courses of study, exploring multiple disciplines or various perspectives on specific areas of study not available in traditional departments.
Academic advising is central to the life of a Gallatin student. Gallatin's unique educational philosophy and structure requires students to develop individualized concentrations under the guidance of Gallatin advisers.
Every year, Gallatin offers more than 100 different interdisciplinary seminars in the liberal arts that focus on major issues or themes in—and across—the humanities and arts, social sciences, and sciences.
Gallatin students may take courses in most of the schools, departments and programs of NYU. Each semester there are several hundred courses to choose from, many taught by some of the country’s leading research scholars and teachers.
An internship is a credit-bearing work experience in a non-classroom environment, which enables a student to learn experientially at a social institution, cultural organization, community-based organization or corporation.
Tutorials are small groups of two to five students working closely with a faculty member on a common topic, project, or skill. An independent study provides students with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a faculty member.
Gallatin currently offers courses for undergraduates during the fall and spring semesters at NYU's global academic centers along with opportunities for graduate students. Many of the Gallatin courses at NYU's global academic centers fulfill BA foundation requirements.
