Majors and Minors

In addition to the majors listed below, the College of Arts and Science hosts over 60 minors. CAS students also have access to over 40 minors across NYU's other undergraduate schools. CAS students interested in a cross-school minor should review our cross-school minor policies and FAQ page.

To request declaration of a CAS major or minor, CAS students should visit the host department. To request declaration of a cross-school minor, CAS students should complete the online Minor Application available in their Albert Student Center. Students may also use the Minor Application in Albert to request cancellation of a CAS or cross-school minor.

The B.A. degree is offered in all the majors listed below except in engineering (offered as dual degree only), neural science, and global public health/science (concentration in biology or chemistry), which only confer the B.S. degree.

Students majoring in chemistry or physics may pursue either the B.A. or the B.S. As part of the dual degree B.S./B.S. program in engineering, the Bachelor of Science degree is offered in those two departments as well as in biology, computer science, and mathematics. Pursuing dual degrees in engineering is the only way to earn a B.S. in any of the three last-named departments, except for the global public health/science major (concentration in biology).
