A small, liberal arts college housed within a major research university, Gallatin attracts creative, self-motivated students who seek to design their own course of study. Students work closely with faculty advisers to create distinctive academic concentrations that allow them to bring together interests from across a wide range of disciplines. Building a strong foundation in significant world texts and the history of ideas through Gallatin’s seminar courses, students also benefit from all the resources of NYU by enrolling in courses in the various NYU schools. Outside of the classroom, students can advance their academic goals by developing individualized projects through independent study, tutorials, and internships and private lessons in the arts. In their final year, seniors complete the Senior Colloquium, the capstone project that showcases their academic achievements and intellectual explorations.
Undergraduate applicants submit their applications to Gallatin through the NYU Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
