Information For Parents

Liberal Studies provides the ethos of a small liberal arts college while giving students access to the range and depth of resources at one of the world's leading metropolitan research universities. Liberal Studies offers two programs: the Core Program, a two-year program that provides students with a foundation for further study at the other NYU undergraduate schools, and a four year program leading to the Global Liberal Studies Bachelor of Arts degree. Both programs share a core curriculum, a rigorous two-year course of study in the global liberal arts in a small class setting that facilitates student participation. The Core Curriculum classes count towards the MAP requirements at many other NYU schools.
