To read the breadth and depth of study our students design and shape is to understand Gallatin's dynamic community. Our students (all 1500+ of them) are passionate and curious and truly engaged with their own individualized course of study. Gallatin undergraduates take about half their courses within Gallatin and the other half in the schools and departments around the university.
