The Courant Computer Science department designed our spring 2022 offerings, following university and GSAS guidance, and state and city health and safety guidelines. Each section received an instruction mode designation.

  • Online: Faculty and all students are remote; there is no physical classroom.
  • Blended: The section or an associated activity (tutorials or project sessions) are partially in-person with rotation of in-person and remote attendance.
  • In-Person: The section is in-person with ordinary meetings.

International students with certain visa restrictions will have an option to attend some classes remotely.

A list of graduate-level courses for each mode can be found below. This list is up-to-date as of November 2, 2021. Course designations may be revised based on the guidance we get from the university. We will inform all registered students promptly if a course designation changes.

For some courses, the in-person component structure and scheduling is not finalized yet; additional information will be posted on the course web pages and in Albert.

In light of the US travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Courant Computer Science will offer courses jointly with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering this spring in Shanghai at the NYU-Shanghai campus on a limited basis. This will be the last semester of Grad GoLocal. For MSCS students, these classes would count towards the 21 credits of standard graduate CS classroom-based courses. Additional information on course offerings at NYUSH will be posted on this site once confirmed.

  • CSCI-GA.3033-631/CS-GY 6313-SHAN Information Visualization
    • Instructor: Xianbin Gu
  • CSCI-GA.3033-918/CS-GY 9183-SHAN Project in Machine Learning
    • Instructor: Li Guo

You can register for these classes directly in Albert. These classes will be held in person, and will have the same content and fulfill the same requirements as the corresponding courses at NYU-New York. These classes will commence the week of January 24, 2022.


Update 10/18/2021: All international students who are newly enrolled as of Spring 2022 and hope to gain entry to the US for that term should be registered for at least one course during the semester that is not online. Acceptable courses are those whose instructional mode is listed in Albert as "In-Person," "Blended," or "Independent Studies." Essentially, whatever term the student starts in the US cannot be fully online. Please contact the Office of Global Services (OGS) for international students for further guidance.
