Gallatin offers students the possibility of completing the bachelor's degree and specific master's degrees (as described below) in five years by taking graduate-level courses while enrolled in the undergraduate program. These accelerated programs are designed for academically strong students with an equally strong commitment to to the specific areas of study.

 

Gallatin-Wagner BA-MPA

Gallatin and NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service enable students to earn both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Individualized Study and a Master of Public Administration (MPA) in Public and Nonprofit Management or in Health Policy and Management. Students enter the program while enrolled as undergraduates in Gallatin and may complete up to seven of the fifteen courses required for the Wagner MPA while they are still undergraduates. Up to 21 credits of MPA courses completed during the undergraduate program may also be applied to the MPA program.

Gallatin-College of Global Public Health BA-MPH

Gallatin School of Individualized Study and the College of Global Public Health (CGPH) offer a dual-degree program that enables students to earn both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Individualized Study and a Master of Public Health (MPH). The dual degree option is available to students going into the following MPH concentrations: Social and Behavioral Sciences, Global Health, Epidemiology, Community and International Health, or Public Health Nutrition. Students enter the program while enrolled as undergraduates in Gallatin and may begin taking MPH core courses. Up to 15 credits of MPH core courses completed during the undergraduate program may also be applied to the MPH program.

Gallatin-College of Global Public Health BA-MA in Bioethics

The Gallatin School of Individualized Study and the College of Global Public Health (CGPH) offer an accelerated program to enable students to earn both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Gallatin’s Individualized Major and a Master of Arts (MA) in Bioethics in less time than it would take to complete the programs separately, and at a reduced cost. Students enter the program while enrolled as undergraduates in Gallatin and must complete 6 credits (two required Bioethics MA courses) of the 32credits required for the MA in addition to the 128 credits required for the BA degree. After matriculation in the MA program, students complete the remaining 26 credits required for the MA in Bioethics. Admission to the BA-MA in Bioethics program is open to Gallatin undergraduate students who have completed at least three semesters at NYU, who have at least two semesters remaining at Gallatin, and who have and maintain a GPA of 3.3 or higher.
