    Course Levels and Registration

    Courses at The New School for Social Research fall into three general categories:

    • Courses numbered 5000–5899 are master’s-level courses. These are generally open to undergraduates at the junior or senior level as well. There is a standard cap of five undergraduates in any course; the faculty member teaching the course has the prerogative to raise or lower the limit. Certain 5000–level courses are cross-listed with other colleges at the university, and these courses are likely to have more undergraduates enrolled than courses that are not cross-listed. A roster of cross-listed courses is available in each department’s student advising office during registration.
    • Courses numbered 6000–6899 are advanced master’s- and doctoral-level courses. These courses are usually open to graduate students from other schools and programs at the university (e.g., Media Studies, International Affairs), but undergraduates can enroll only with special permission from both the faculty member teaching the course and the undergraduate student's program advisor. A very small number of 6000-level courses are cross-listed with other schools by agreement with the department chair at The New School for Social Research. A roster of cross-listed courses is available in each department's student advising office during registration.
    • Courses numbered 7000–7899 are open only to students in doctoral programs.
    • Special courses and practica are numbered 5900–5999, 6900–6999, or 7900–7999.

    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.
