Advisement & Resources
Assistance to Achieve Your Goals
NYU Wagner faculty and staff assist students in the development of a plan of study that helps them achieve their academic and career goals. The school offers several sources of advisement for students, including full-time faculty, program advisors, and the Office of Career Services.
Full-time faculty are available as a source of advisement to help students shape their specialization and elective courses toward academic and professional goals. Students are encouraged to seek advisement from a range of faculty found in the Faculty Advisement Search.
