The courses in the list below have been pre-approved by Wagner faculty and may be taken as electives by Wagner students. Students may not take a non-Wagner course in their first semester. New courses will be added to this list as appropriate.

Please note that the syllabi on this page are provided as a reference only and may not be current. For the most up-to-date syllabi, students should contact the concerned department.

Courses Not on Pre-Approved List

If students are interested in a course that is not on the pre-approved list below, and is open to a Wagner student, students must follow the instructions on this page. In addition, students must be sure that a similar course is not offered at Wagner.

Deadline: Students must request approval at least one month prior to the start of the semester in which the course begins (even if the course starts mid-semester). Note that Stern course requests must meet the Stern deadline, which is much earlier and published here.
