For the sake of readability, it is recommended that the text of the dissertation be double-spaced (except for footnotes, long quoted passages, and lists of tables and figures, which are single-spaced).The hallmark of the Gallatin program is the student’s opportunity to tailor these choices to fit his or her distinct passions and goals.Students are also encouraged to take advantage of learning opportunities outside traditional classroom work in the various graduate schools of New York University.If a student chooses to write a thesis, it requires eight courses and two research credits (597) for the completion of the master’s thesis.A thesis or research paper based on joint work with other researchers is allowed provided that, in such cases, a unique and separate document is presented by each degree candidate.With diverse goals, Gallatin students are often intellectual and professional pioneers, mapping new relationships among fields of knowledge.Students are encouraged to draw on the educational resources of NYU’s graduate and professional schools and of New York City.Writing a thesis is optional for some master’s programs and not required.There are abundant opportunities for personalized interaction with faculty through research courses, independent studies, and seminars.They may pursue independent studies, individual projects that involve meeting one-on-one with professors; tutorials, small groups of students working closely with an instructor on a common topic, project or skill; internships, direct work experiences in businesses, government agencies or cultural institutions; and private lessons, for students in the arts who wish to study outside the University.Gallatin recognizes the importance of students’ different learning styles and the value of adjusting inquiry to each student’s particular interests.
