New York University Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Arts & Science is the intellectual core of New York University. It is also, by some distance, the largest academic unit at NYU.
Arts & Science has a rich and diverse academic organization. It is home to the oldest undergraduate (founded in 1832) and graduate school (founded in 1886) at NYU: the College of Arts and Science, and the Graduate School of Arts and Science. The College mounts virtually all the instruction for its own students as well as the general education curriculum for the entire University. The Graduate School provides doctoral level training central to the University’s research mission as well as professional level masters programs. The faculty is organized into 29 departments within three divisions (Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences). Our overriding priority is to build one of the truly great Arts and Science schools in the world. We are well on our way to achieving this goal. The migration of faculty and student talent in recent years to Arts and Science departments has been remarkable, and we are determined not just to maintain this momentum but accelerate it.
