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.

    GSAS Master's College presents
    Cafe Discourse: Climate Change Edition
    Join the Master’s College Program Board at Cafe Discourse, an event that brings graduate students from diverse departments together for lively conversation on weighty yet modern topics in a laid-back environment. This month, they will be viewing a special screening of the National Geographic documentary Before the Flood, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as he explores the impact of man-made climate change around the globe. The screening will be followed by a lively discussion of the film and the current state of climate change.

    Consider these questions ahead of the discussion:

    - Can we reverse or reduce the negative effects of man-made climate change on our planet?
    - Do we have a responsibility as global citizens to act? What actions can we take?
    - What role do scientists and lobbyists play in the climate change debate?

    Join us for this truly interdisciplinary and engaging conversation and as always, the first round is on us.

    Friday, February 10
    14A Washington Mews
    New York, NY 10003
