The following courses have been pre-approved by Wagner faculty and may be taken as electives by Wagner students. Before registering for any course on this list, students should discuss with their faculty advisor how a particular course fits into their program. Students may not take a non-Wagner course in their first semester. This is an initial list and new courses will be added as appropriate (Wagner students should forward relevant syllabi to their program's administrator to be posted to this webpage as appropriate).

If students are interested in a course that is not on the pre-approved list below, they must obtain the syllabus and send it to their faculty advisor. The course will then be reviewed to determine whether it is appropriate and relevant to the Wagner degree program and specialization. If approved, the syllabus and faculty advisor approval should then be forwarded to the student's Wagner program administrator.

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

Note: If a 3-credit course is taken at another NYU school, 1 credit will be waived automatically upon graduation.
