The Graduate School of Arts and Science’s Master's College provides access to information, advisement, and resources for prospective and current master's students as they focus on their scholarly, professional, and personal development. Founded by Dean Emeritus Catharine R. Stimpson in 2007, the Master’s College is an innovative initiative in higher education which demonstrates our commitment and dedication to master’s education and students. We work with NYU campus-wide offices and GSAS academic departments and programs to provide the highest quality master’s education. We host a variety of academic events, including thesis competitions, career-planning seminars, and grant-writing workshops. The Master's College also plans social events to give students a chance to meet colleagues from other departments in a convivial and welcoming atmosphere.

The Master's College recruits students to participate on the Master's College Program Board, a group of current master's students from diverse backgrounds who create, plan, and host events for their fellow students. Its mission is to enhance the educational experience of GSAS master's students by providing activities that build a sense of unity across the NYU global community.
