Curriculum

Each graduate student works closely with a faculty adviser to design a curriculum that integrates course work throughout the University with the Gallatin graduate core courses and individualized project options.

The MA program begins with the proseminar, a graduate core course that is taken in the first or second semester of enrollment, depending on the availability of the proseminar of the student’s choice. The majority of the curriculum will then consist of course work taken at the various NYU graduate schools and can also include options such as Gallatin elective courses, independent study, tutorials, internships and private lessons.

The graduate program culminates with the MA thesis.  Students begin the thesis process by writing the thesis proposal in the Thesis Proposal Seminar, usually taken in the second semester of full-time study, or after completing 12 units.  Students then continue working on the thesis in Master's Thesis I (taken in the third semester of full-time study) and Master's Thesis II (taken in the fourth semester of full-time study), independent studies overseen by the adviser.
