Students at NYU Shanghai can pursue two different types of minors: 

Minor Requirements

  • A grade of C or better is required for a course to be counted toward a minor
  • At least 12 credits of the minor must be unique to the minor. This means that the 12 credits are not being used to fulfill another, core curriculummajor or minor requirement.

NYU Shanghai Minors

NYU New York Cross-School Minors

NYU Shanghai students can pursue NYU New York Cross-School Minors.

Students may take cross-school minor courses as listed on the website. If the course(s) that students plan to take are not consistent with the courses listed on the website, students can draft a minor course plan, and contact the offering department to ask if will fulfill the department’s minor requirements. If the course plan is confirmed by the offering department, students should forward the confirmation to their academic advisor.

Posting Cross-School Minors: Students who have completed a Cross-School Minor should follow the NYU Shanghai process to report their minor completion information to their NYU Shanghai academic advisor in order to get the minor posted on their transcript. Students do not need to declare NYU New York Cross-School Minors in Albert.
