NYU undergraduates are not required to declare a major until second semester of their sophomore year, and are allowed to shift majors in subsequent years. As such we do not have a distinct cohort to track from the freshman year.
Departing Seniors are defined as all seniors in an end-of-fall count of majors who do not appear in the next year’s end-of-fall count.
Students are required to complete a second major in addition to Journalism, chosen from the other academic programs in the College of Arts and Science.
Master’s outcomes by starting cohorts
At the Master’s level the Institute offers ten areas of study. Most M.A.s can be completed in three semesters (Fall, Spring, Fall) with the exception of the Global and Joint programs which typically require two years to complete.
Given the short duration of our program, we do not track retention on shorter time scales.
