Cross-school minors offer students the opportunity to develop specializations in a number of non-liberal arts fields through structured coursework taken at other NYU schools. These minors, which are open to all students in the College of Arts and Science, are either partly or wholly composed of courses from participating schools, such as the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering; the Silver School of Social Work; the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; the Stern School of Business; the Tisch School of the Arts; and the Wagner School of Public Service.

Students interested in pursuing a cross-school minor are encouraged to view minor requirements and to contact a minor representative with any questions. Minor curricula and contact information can be found on the NYU cross-school minors website. For additional advising support, CAS students can contact the associate director for interschool programs in the College, or schedule an appointment with the associate director through the College's Preprofessional Advising Center (Silver Center, Room 901, 212-998-8160).

With the exception of the cinema studies minor, all courses taken outside the College to complete cross-school minor requirements count toward the 16-point limit on course work in other divisions. Since many of these minors require 16 points of coursework outside the College, students are strongly encouraged to develop their course of study in consultation with a CAS adviser. Courses taken within the College (with a -UA suffix) to complete cross-school minor requirements will not count toward the 16-point limit. Students seeking additional non-CAS credits above the 16-point limit must file a petition in the Office of the Associate Dean for Students (Silver Center, Room 909; 212-998-8140).

No courses taken in the other schools of NYU (whether for a cross-school minor or as electives) may count toward the 64 credits that internal or external transfer students to CAS are required to complete in CAS (-UA) courses.

The minors offered by other NYU schools that are available to CAS students are listed on the NYU cross-school minors website. For further information about the business studies, child and adolescent mental health studies, cinema studies, law and society, and science and society minors, please consult the relevant sections of this Bulletin.
