Course Levels and Registration
Courses offered at The New School for Social Research fall into three general categories.
Certain courses limit enrollments of students who are not degree-seeking students in the department offering the course. Students who are interested in enrolling in such courses must get the approval of the department’s student advisor. This procedure applies to students from Eugene Lang College, The New School for Liberal Arts, and the Schools of Public Engagement as well as The New School for Social Research.
A list of limited-enrollment courses is available in the office of each department’s student advisor during registration. In addition, student advisors in other schools receive a list of New School for Social Research limited-enrollment courses during registration.
Students from Lang or from the Schools of Public Engagement who have been granted bachelor’s/master’s status at The New School for Social Research can take 5000- and 6000-level courses (subject to approval by instructor, if necessary). Bachelor’s/master’s students must see the appropriate student advisor at The New School for Social Research to get information on the school’s departmental requirements and course offerings before each registration period. However, bachelor’s/master’s students register through their respective home schools using those schools' registration procedures.
