Our graduate students are as diverse as the concentrations they develop. Gallatin’s MA Program is comprised of recent college graduates, those interested in changing the focus of their careers, as well as professionals seeking to enhance their existing expertise. What they have in common is the motivation to embrace the challenge of interdisciplinary study and the independence and intellectual curiosity to shape and direct their course of study. Students can attend on a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students usually complete the degree in 2 years. Part-time students are given 6 years to complete the degree.
Gallatin’s graduate students work with faculty from across NYU and can take courses in NYU’s various graduate and professional schools. Outside of the classroom, students can further their academic goals by developing individualized projects through independent study, tutorials, internships, and private lessons in the arts. At the end of their studies, students complete a final research, artistic, or project thesis.
