Based on their individual needs and interests, Gallatin students take courses in graduate programs throughout the University. As long as they have met the prerequisites and the program does not limit enrollment to its own students, Gallatin students are eligible to enroll in courses in all the other schools of NYU (except the School of Medicine and the College of Dentistry). Many Gallatin students eventually take courses in two or three different NYU graduate schools.
As part of their program planning, students should refer to the bulletins and Web sites of all the schools in which they might study. The directory of NYU schools below is designed to help graduate students identify programs and departments where they may take courses. Please note that some of the courses in the schools and departments listed here have prerequisites, and others may be limited to students in their respective departments.
