- At Gallatin, advising plays a crucial role in student success. When a student matriculates in our graduate program, they will be assigned a faculty adviser, an NYU professor who will work with the student to define academic and professional goals, develop an appropriate strategy for pursuing those goals, and help locate the necessary educational resources to carry out the academic plan. Given as much, although it is listed as optional, we highly recommend that you spend some time thinking about this field as part of the application process.
- While some of our MA students work with Gallatin faculty as their primary advisers, many of our students work with faculty from other programs and schools at NYU as their primary advisers. You may identify prospective advisers by researching the faculty in the programs and schools where you plan to take your courses (full-time and part-time faculty may serve as primary advisers) and by consulting the list of faculty on the Gallatin website (full-time, associate, and part-time faculty may all serve as advisers for M.A. students). Please include at least one Gallatin faculty member in your list.
- Please note that we cannot guarantee that the faculty you suggest will be available to advise you, but it is helpful to start considering potential faculty advisers as early as possible in the application process.
