Course Levels and Registration
Courses at The New School for Social Research fall into three general categories:
In certain courses at all levels, enrollment is normally restricted to students studying for a degree in the department offering the course. This restriction applies to students in other departments of The New School for Social Research as well students from other schools at the university. All students from outside the department must have approval from the department’s student advisor to register for one of these limited-enrollment courses. A list of limited-enrollment courses is available in each department’s advising office during the registration period and is also distributed to student advisors in other divisions.
Undergraduate students in a bachelor’s/master’s program at Eugene Lang College or the Schools of Public Engagement can take 5000- and 6000-level courses, in accordance with the policies stated above. These students register for graduate courses through their home school using that school's registration procedures. However, bachelor’s/master’s students can consult with department student advisors at The New School for Social Research before each registration period to get information about each department's course offerings and prerequisites.
