The NYU School of Professional Studies Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies prides itself on the world-class faculty members who teach our students. They are a diverse group of accomplished scholars and professionals in broad-ranging areas of emerging industries; and the liberal arts, social sciences, and humanities. Their deep knowledge, hands-on working experience, and ability to translate complex ideas into immediately applicable skills, will provide you with an education that is second to none.
The vast majority of our faculty members hold a PhD or a terminal degree in their area of expertise. They provide academic leadership for our degree programs, ensuring that curricula remain fresh and relevant to the continually evolving fields we serve.
They are prominent researchers, published scholars, and thought leaders, but they also are devoted teachers and mentors who understand the responsibilities and concerns of those who are just starting out on their higher education journey or who are returning to school after a break. They will be with you every step of the way as you begin to explore the academic and professional opportunities at hand. They will challenge you to work hard, to be inquisitive, to explore different viewpoints, and to reach your full potential.
In addition to support from the Division's academic advisors, you will benefit from one-on-one faculty advisement. A full-time faculty member in your program of study will help to guide you in your chosen major or concentration, and toward achieving your educational and professional goals. Drawing upon their own deep experience, faculty advisors provide discipline-specific advice to broaden your intellectual horizons and to ensure that you make the most of your educational experience.
