Majors and Minors

NYU Abu Dhabi offers 23 undergraduate majors across Arts and Humanities, Engineering, Science, and Social Science, and numerous multidisciplinary minors and specializations.

As the student body and faculty grow, new courses are developed to reflect student interests and expanding faculty expertise. Course offerings are also enriched by the wide array of programs across NYU’s global network. During four years of undergraduate study, students have an extensive choice of courses in all disciplines and are able to fulfill all graduation requirements.

Minors in the NYU Global Network
Where comparable NYUAD minors do not already exist, NYUAD students may be able to complete one of the many academic minors offered elsewhere in the NYU global network. Students interested in completing one of these minors would ordinarily take most or all of the required courses in New York, Shanghai, and/or one of the other global sites. However, appropriate NYUAD courses may also be used toward completion of an NYU minor. Directed Study courses generally cannot be used to meet global network minor requirements.
