NYU is an academic community of campuses, schools, colleges, and programs that spans the globe. As you consider an education here, you first need to decide which campus is the best fit for you. From there, you’ll have opportunities to study at other NYU locations.
Our New York City campus is home to 11 schools and colleges, with each offering a distinct identity, academic focus, and intellectual community. Which one you will be a part of is determined by your chosen major or program. Read on to learn more.
College of Arts & Science
Renowned for its academic rigor and research opportunities, our largest undergraduate college offers a broad and comprehensive liberal arts and preprofessional studies curriculum in 90 areas of study. It’s home to distinguished faculty members, like author Jonathan Safran Foer, poet Sharon Olds, Nobel Prize-winning economist Thomas Sargent, and Medal of Science winner Cathleen Synge Morawetz.
College of Dentistry
This is the only dental school in the United States with a research center that provides beds for 24-hour patient monitoring. Our dental hygiene programs offer extraordinary clinical and academic opportunities for students interested in preventive oral healthcare and the promotion of good health. Our students take part in challenging coursework while employing what they learn in real-world environments.
Gallatin School of Individualized Study
Rigorous academics and course flexibility, close and collaborative personal advisement, and an extensive internship program are hallmarks of Gallatin. Purposely small and experimental, the school was established for students with the maturity to tailor their own curriculum to match individual academic and professional goals.
Leonard N. Stern School of Business
Stern is one of the highest-ranked undergraduate business schools in the United States. You can choose to major in either the Core Business Program — with concentrations such as actuarial science, finance, entrepreneurship, and marketing — or the Business and Political Economy Program. While here, you’ll gain a solid foundation in both the liberal arts and global business.
In Liberal Studies, you can choose from two unique options. The Global Liberal Studies bachelor's program features core coursework in the liberal arts with a focus on the great works in a global context. The two-year Core Program in the liberal arts is for students who intend to complete their undergraduate education in another NYU school or college.
