NYU’s two dozen graduate degree programs offer flexible study options while pursuing a degree. From studying Occupational Therapy in Mississippi to pursuing a Master's degree in Public Health as a working professional in Malawi, NYU students now span the globe.

My work in the online program is, in my experience, ‘better work’ and has informed my in-person classes.

Online Degree Profile

  • Our online Master’s degrees are the fastest growing part of NYU’s enormous degree portfolio, increasing in enrollment by 35% in the last year.
  • Master’s degrees have also been designed with working people in mind. The majority of them offer a part-time track.
  • Degree pathways are designed so students always know their path to degree completion. Careful degree maps created for online programs help to keep students focused.
  • Many degrees involve short, intensive workshop sessions at our New York City campus, bringing together students and their instructors at least once during a program.
  • Where field work is required for jobs involving teaching or various forms of therapy, NYU maintains a list of partner institutions across the United States for students to work with.

Online courses have enabled people to reach an affordable way to pursue a certificate or degree at the College of Global Public Health.

NYU is committed to the same standards of course design, program design, and admissions in our online programs as our traditional ones. We have two dozen online Master’s degrees and more on the way.
