Department of Chemistry and in accordance with the academic policies of NYU 
GSAS. Each student develops an individualized course plan in consultation 
with the Director of Graduate Study at the NYU Department of Chemistry and 
the student's NYU Shanghai faculty advisor. Most students will complete 
their PhD in 5 years. A typical sequence follows:

Summer 1 in Shanghai - Begin program with funded summer research, up to 3 
months preceding first Fall semester, to familiarize with NYU Shanghai and 
faculty as well as lay a foundation for future doctoral study.

Year 1 Fall in New York - Pursue PhD coursework at Department of Chemistry 
alongside other NYU PhD students.

Year 1 Spring in Shanghai or New York - Complete PhD coursework and conduct 
research rotations with NYU Shanghai faculty. Select PhD advisor and make 
further progress in research during the summer in Shanghai.

Year 2 and Onward in Shanghai - Under supervision of NYU Shanghai faculty 
advisor, pursue dissertation research. Complete all required examinations 
and progress evaluations, both oral and written, leading up to submission 
and defense of doctoral thesis.
