Majors and Minors as Registered by the New York State Education Department


The index below indicates the full range of majors and minors offered in the College of Arts and Science. Individual courses are described under each departmental section of the Bulletin. See also the preprofessional, accelerated, and specialized programs section of this Bulletin. The B.A. degree is offered in all the majors listed below except in engineering (offered as dual degree only), neural science, and global public health/science (concentration in biology or chemistry), which only confer the B.S. degree.

The B.S. degree is an option in the majors in chemistry and physics; as part of the dual degree B.S./B.S. program with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, it is offered in these two departments as well as in biology, computer science, and mathematics.

Unless otherwise noted, both majors and minors are available in the following:

Also available to students in the College are several minors offered in other divisions of New York University. For more information, see the cross-school minors section of this Bulletin.

This Bulletin contains descriptions of the College's departments, programs, and courses. The first part of every course number identifies the department or program offering or cross-listing the course (for example, ARTH for art history). This is always followed by a two-letter suffix. The suffix "UA" indicates undergraduate courses offered in the College; "GA" indicates a graduate course offered by the Graduate School of Arts and Science. The numeric identifier comes last (for example, a complete course rubric would be ARTH-UA 677).

Graduate courses open to qualified undergraduates are designated by the departments. The departmental policy in this matter may be indicated either in this Bulletin or in the Graduate School of Arts and Science Bulletin; interested students are also advised to check directly with the relevant departments.
