MCC majors take liberal arts courses and MCC core courses* in their freshman and sophomore years. In their junior and senior years, students focus on completing two of five Areas of Study and restricted electives. In conjunction with department advisors, you will select a sequence of courses that satisfy program and degree requirements while simultaneously exploring your own intellectual and professional objectives. A total of 128 course credits are required to graduate.
Students enrolled in the Media, Culture, and Communication/Global Public Health (MCC/GPH) combined major have different degree requirements.
*You must earn a B- or better to use the core course toward the MCC major or the minor. If you receive a grade lower than a B-, you may retake the course once to improve the grade, but only one retaken course is allowed. This means that students receiving below a B- in two or more MCC core courses (even if taken in the same semester) will have to explore with their advisor other options for majoring at NYU.
