Graduate studies at NYU

When you choose graduate study at NYU, you choose more than a top-ranked university. You choose:

  • A community of scholars enrolled in over 400 graduate and professional degree programs in 14 graduate and professional schools
  • The resources of a global research university, in particular faculty who push the boundaries of increasing knowledge in their fields
  • Fellow students whose talent, intellect, and curiosity make them poised to become the leaders of tomorrow
  • Nearly half a million alumni living throughout the world and united by their pursuit of excellence

Perhaps most importantly, you choose a university located in and enriched by the world's crossroads, connected not only to New York City's wealth of opportunity but to a global network of scholars and innovators that reach beyond the expected to achieve the extraordinary.

Your fellow students

Your fellow NYU graduate students will come from every U.S. state and over 130 countries. Whether studying, conducting research, sharpening your professional acumen, or building your network, you will be surrounded by scholars and peers who will enlighten and challenge you. No matter where you head on your journey after graduation, they could be your colleagues for life.

Your professors

What makes NYU faculty members ideal graduate teachers and advisers is something more than just the honors they’ve won (four Nobel and Crafoord Prizes, five Pulitzers, 11 MacArthurs, and dozens of Guggenheims just recently, to name a few); there’s no better type of instructor and mentor to engage and push you academically while connecting you to the “real world” of your field.

Your alumni

As a graduate, you will join NYU’s vast network of over 470,000 alumni spread throughout 183 countries. Among them stand countless leaders, researchers, artists, and visionaries recognized as MacArthur “Genius” Fellows and Nobel Laureates. Many graduates who came before you have already built connections in business, government, and the arts, and they appreciate the NYU experience you share.

The world's greatest urban learning laboratory

Learning is meant for the real world, and NYU students benefit from an exceptional combination of scholarship and real-world application. Our campus is not walled but is woven intentionally into the fabric of the city. The university is a truly urban institution, embracing the most diverse, exciting, and important city in the world.

There is no better destination to learn, to engage, to be challenged, and to live.
