Scheduling the Colloquium
Selecting Your Committee Members
Your committee will consist of your adviser and two other NYU faculty members. Of the three committee members, one must be a full-time Gallatin faculty member. Please keep in mind that committee members should be appropriate for your colloquium topic. You may also review the Gallatin faculty list to locate a panel member for your committee. If you do not have specific requests for your committee, your Class Adviser will help you find appropriate faculty members.
Setting a Date and Time
After you submit the book list and rationale, you can proceed with the scheduling process. It is your responsibility to schedule the date and time of your colloquium with committee members. Since the scheduling process may take a few days or even longer (depending on the availability of your committee members), please start this process as soon as possible and far in advance of the colloquium registration deadline.
You should also be aware that you may encounter some difficulties in finding committee members or arranging a date for a colloquium in January or September because of the limited availability of faculty during the summer months and winter recess.
Submitting the Registration Form
Once you have selected your committee members and have scheduled a date and time, you will need to register for your colloquium. The registration form must be submitted by the deadline specified in the colloquium calendar regardless of any pending approval of the rationale and book list.
Approximately two weeks prior to your colloquium date, Gallatin will email a schedule confirmation to committee members with a room assignment, as well as a copy of your rationale and booklist.
If you have already submitted the registration form to Gallatin and you would like to change a panel member or the date and time of your colloquium, you will need to notify the Office of Advising at least two weeks prior to the date of your colloquium, and you must confirm a new date/time with all committee members.
