Gallatin offers students the possibility of completing the bachelors degree and specific masters degrees (as described below) in five years by taking graduate-level courses while enrolled in the undergraduate program. These dual-degree programs are designed for academically strong students with an equally strong commitment to public service and leadership.
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.
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.
