Individual Workshop Descriptions

Student Publications and the Writing Program

This workshop provides an overview of the Gallatin Writing Program’s publications, such as Confluence, Gallatin Review, and The Literacy Review as well as publications hosted by Gallatin student clubs, Compass and EMBODIED. Students will also learn about The Writing Center, civic engagement projects, and much more!


Internships are credit-bearing work experiences in non-classroom environments such as cultural and community-based institutions, social justice organizations, and private companies. In this session, you will learn about the internship search process, internship credit policies, the academic requirements you will be asked to fulfill in order to complete your internship successfully, and the kinds of skills and knowledge you will develop by engaging in non-classroom learning experiences.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities and Scholarships

Be Well, Do Well (Tips for Success)

In this workshop we will discuss strategies for being a successful college student and transitioning from life at home. Topics covered will include time management, how academic and social expectations differ between high school and college, and resources for well-being and support offered at Gallatin and NYU. Gallatin’s wellness counselor will be in attendance to introduce NYU's health and wellness center and discuss the particular challenges students may face during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dual Degrees and Pre-Health

This workshop will introduce students to pre-health curriculum and discuss how to integrate it into your interdisciplinary studies at Gallatin. We will also learn more about accelerated bachelor’s to master’s programs through dual degree partnerships between Gallatin and other NYU programs.
