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.

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 apply has passed.  Future deadlines will be announced at a later date.
