During junior year, students focus upon developing a unique concentration which reflects their academic and professional interests and goals. During junior year some students may work towards completing cross-school minors; Other students may study away in the US or abroad in locations like Washington DC, Prague, Ghana, and Tel Aviv; Many might be engaged in internships at recording studios, print publications, financial firms, and the like.

A large component of junior year is preparing for the colloquium, Gallatin’s capstone event that takes place during the senior year. The colloquium provides an opportunity for students to reflect on their concentrations and to synthesize experiences studying books, taking courses, and doing independent studies and internships into an integrated discussion.

Colloquium Planning

Students are encouraged to begin planning for the colloquium before senior year.  Juniors should set up a meeting with their primary faculty adviser  to touch base regarding the timeline for rationale and booklist development, and preparations for the colloquium. Read about the colloquium requirement, and learn about Gallatin's expectations for the conversation where students will find information about rationale and booklist review cycles and colloquium completion deadlines.  

Students entering Gallatin in Fall 2015 or later will be required to register for COLLQ-UG during the semester in which the colloquium is completed. This two credit requirement formalizes the time and effort needed to successfully prepare for the colloquium. Students who began their studies at Gallatin prior to Fall 2015 have the option to register. Details about COLLQ-UG are available here.

Colloquium Workshops

Sponsored by the Office of Advising, colloquium workshops are held throughout the year. The workshops articulate the timeline and expectations for the colloquium process. All upperclass students are advised to attend a colloquium workshop, and read information available online before attending.

Fall 2015 Colloquium Workshops:

  • Friday, September 11, 2:00 - 3:00 in room 501
  • Wednesday, September 23, 10:00 - 11:00 in room 801
  • Thursday, October 15, 5:00 - 6:00 in room 801

BA/MPA Dual Degree Program

The Gallatin School of Individualized Study and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service have created a dual-degree program to enable students to earn both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Gallatin's Individualized Major and a Master of Public Administration (MPA) in either Wagner's Public and Nonprofit Management and Policy Program (PNP), or its Health Policy and Management Program (HPAM) in less time than it would take to complete the programs separately. This dual degree is designed for students with a strong commitment to public leadership, and will allow such students to enhance and focus their opportunities for learning, while helping them to build a meaningful career in public service.  You are eligible to apply to be pre-tracked for the dual degree program when you have completed 72 credits.  The fall deadline to pre-apply is October 1st, 2014.
