NYU Interdisciplinary Masters (XE)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have information on NYU's Interdisciplinary Masters (XE) program? I applied for the comp lit PhD and was admitted into this instead. I don't intend to accept, but am just wondering if anyone has information on it. It seems like a nebulous program and beyond the brief description on NYU's website, I can't find a lot of information.

I'm not sure if we are talking about the same program, but I applied to NYU's PhD Program in Anthropology and received an invite to their Experimental Humanities (XE) last year, which I believe was formerly called Interdisciplinary Studies. I already have an MA in a regional studies program and the XE designation screams "prestigious revenue stream". Similar programs can be found at UC Davis and basically read like a laundry list of graduate level course for a general liberal arts degree.

I dug around and found their website... and some course listings from last year (but nothing current)

Yes, prestigious revenue stream is the vibe I'm getting as well.

I similarly applied to their PhD in anthropology and was accepted into this "interdisciplinary masters" instead. They invited me to an *online* visit day, not very promising. Prestigious revenue stream to be sure.
