Senior year at Gallatin is a time of continued intellectual growth and celebration. Indeed, during senior year, students have the opportunity to engage in advanced coursework, participate in rewarding internships, conduct research, and create specialized tutorials with Gallatin faculty members. Moreover, seniors complete an important milestone in their time at Gallatin, writing the Rationale and List of Works and sitting their Senior Colloquium. Seniors also have the opportunity to propose and complete a Senior Project, a major research project that students develop with a faculty mentor that pushes their major concentration into new and exciting directions.
Senior year presents numerous moments for sharing academic achievements with other Gallatin students, faculty, friends, and family. Seniors particpate in the Gallatin Arts Festival, Senior Symposium, theatrical productions, and the Gallatin Fashion Show.
Senior year is also a time of preparation and transition for life beyond Gallatin. Seniors share with their faculty adviser and class adviser their future plans, visit the Wasserman Center for advice on navigating the job market, prepare materials for graduate school applications, apply to prestigious grants, awards, and fellowships, and ready themselves for professional employment.
Another important component of senior year at Gallatin is working closely with the Senior Class Advising team, who can help answer questions about senior-related concerns and connect seniors with resources at Gallatin and across NYU.
Your Senior Class Advisers are Rachel Bunker (email@example.com) and Malik Walker (firstname.lastname@example.org). Rachel advises seniors who have last names that begin with the letters A-K, while Malik advises seniors who have last names that begin with the letters L-Z.
Both Rachel and Malik are here to support your academic progress toward the completion of the degree. Please feel free to schedule an appointment with either of them via email to discuss any questions you have related to senior year and preparing for life after graduation.
For your reference, the Office of Advising also maintains the Senior Class Email Archive. This Archive contains useful correspondence and updates sent at the beginning of each month to seniors by the seniors class advisers.
