The New Graduate Curriculum (NGC)

The New Graduate Curriculum (NGC) that commences with the 2013 – 2014 academic year is outlined on these web pages. Two years ago the Curriculum Committee of the Graduate Division commenced a curriculum review. Following much research, discussion and debate, the NGC developed by the Curriculum Committee was approved by the Graduate Executive Committee for implementation in the fall of 2013. We believe that the NGC will enhance graduate training at Einstein in ways both large and small. The principal goals of the NGC are to:

  • Allow the flexibility necessary to design a tailored didactic training program
  • Provide breadth and depth in the course offerings
  • Provide complementary course content with minimal overlap among courses
  • Provide a structure within which faculty can keep courses current and contemporary
  • Separate course work and first-year laboratory rotations so that students can give each of these respective training components their undivided attention
  • Allow students to complete the bulk of their didactic training during their first year and commence full-time thesis research early in their second year
  • Ultimately decrease the time to attainment of the Ph.D.

These web pages will be updated as curriculum planning and implementation proceeds to our new beginning in August. Specific questions or concerns should be addressed to the Curriculum Committee Chairperson or appropriate departmental member of the Curriculum Committee.
