College Core Curriculum (CORE)
Other Liberal Arts Requirements
Core courses have a minimum grade requirement in order to count towards the MCC major.
MCC Areas of Study: Framing Courses
While Core courses survey the field of media studies as a whole, Framing courses give students an overview of a particular sub-field or area of inquiry within media studies: visual culture, psychoanalysis, film, television, video games, and digital platforms, among others. They expose students to the scholarly questions, theories, and debates that shape these subfields. Learn about Framing courses.
MCC Areas of Study: Focus Courses
Focus courses offer students the opportunity to explore in depth a specific theme or topic they may have encountered elsewhere in the curriculum. They are an opportunity for students to hone in on a particular medium, cultural form, research question, or social practice. Learn about Focus courses.
Choose from the MCC professional electives listed or, in consultation with your advisor, choose non-MCC classes that you deem useful to your professional goals. Pre-approved classes include offerings in Stern, Journalism, Computer Science, Film & Television, and Open Arts, among other programs.
You must earn a B- or better to use the core course toward the MCC major or minor. You are allowed one unique opportunity to retake a core course during your time in the program. Students receiving below a B- in two or more MCC core courses will have to explore other options for majoring at NYU.
If you have taken the NODEP-UA 9982 Experiential Learning Seminar at the NYU-LA campus, you have an exception to the 6 credit internship maximum in order to complete this required course at the NYU-LA campus. The 2 credit differential from taking the NODEP-UA course can count toward your liberal arts elective requirements, unrestricted electives, or professional electives.
