Students in this dual degree program concentrate their studies in a subject from within the NYU Graduate School of Arts and Science and pair that with the M. S. in Library Science degree from The Palmer School. The dual degree is designed to prepare subject specialists who will work in academic research settings. Students apply independently to both programs and must meet the admission standards of each program.
Graduate School of Arts and Science master’s degrees generally require between 32 and 36 points. The M.S. in Library Science requires 36. A total of 8 points from the NYU’s GSAS program and a total of 8 points from Palmer can be transferred in place of elective courses toward the other school’s degree. Thus students generally take approximately 52 points combined from both universities. The program includes a specialized 160-hour mentoring program offering students the opportunity of working one-on-one with a librarian from the NYU libraries.
Please note that students who have already earned more than six Palmer points are no longer eligible to apply to the dual degree. Students who have earned more than 12 points in GSAS will be assessed on an individual basis. For inquiries into the dual degree program, please contact Alice Flynn, Program Director, Palmer Manhattan, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 212 998 2680.
