Graduate Program

New York University awards students in the Center for Experimental Humanities a Master of Arts degree on the completion of 32 credits (eight courses) and a master's thesis. A minimum of 16 credits must be taken within the CEH; the remaining courses may be taken in other graduate departments and programs within NYU. Extensive faculty advising follows students' course selection, monitors academic progress, and assists in the development of long-term goals. Exploration and innovative interdisciplinary work is promoted through the CEH's faculty, courses, and the unique relationship it enjoys with other departments and programs in the university.

The Center for Experimental Humanities offers a combination of flexibility and rigorous academic training. Part of CEH's success results from personal, individual faculty advisement. Students are advised by the center's director and associate director, other members of the center's faculty, and by selected faculty in the Graduate School at large.

Advising extends beyond course selection and the master's thesis. An interdisciplinary graduate degree can be shaped to reach many different goals, and it is here that the expertise of the faculty proves especially valuable. CEH graduates move into doctoral programs, professional schools, and many kinds of productive careers, ranging from teaching at the secondary level to mass media production to Wall Street. New York University, the Graduate School, and the Center for Experimental Humanities possess a wide array of resources to assist in the formation and completion of these longer-term objectives.
