Wagner Minor Requirements


Grade Requirement

Credit toward the minors is not given for courses completed with a grade of less than C, or for courses taken on a pass/fail basis. 

CAS Residency

CAS students are allowed to take 16 credits in non-liberal arts courses in the other schools of the University; any Wagner courses taken toward the minors count against those 16 credits. Students with a good academic reason for going over the 16-point limit must petition the Office of Academic Standards (Silver 909, 212.998.8140) for permission to take additional credits outside of the College.

In addition, no Wagner courses can count toward the 64 credits that internal or external transfer students to the College are required to complete in CAS (-UA) courses.

Double Counting Courses

Students can count one course in a minor towards the requirements of another major or minor. Students intending to double count any courses would also need to contact the other major or minor’s department to ask if, and to what extent, that department permits overlapping courses.

Minor Completion Memo

If courses that count toward the minor are not appearing on your Degree Progress Report, please contact wagner.undergraduate@nyu.edu after you’ve completed the minor with the following information:

  • Name

  • Minor

  • N Number

  • List of courses (course number and title) that you took that count toward the minor

We will then submit a minor completion memo to the registrar.

Other Academic Policies

Students who have declared interdisciplinary minors in partnership with the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service follow the academic policies set forth by the home school. See Undergraduate for schools and policies.

Community Student Organizations

Minor students are encouraged to participate in Wagner Student Organizations overseen by the Wagner Student Association for graduate students.
