Click on images for course descriptions.


Graduate students are encouraged to take for credit or audit courses offered by faculty affiliates in Music, Art History, Hispanic Languages & Literature, and Sociology. For courses being offered in Fall 2021 see the attached list.

Eligible students (doctoral students 2nd year and above) may take courses for credit via the NY Area Inter-University Doctoral Consortium.  Students can browse IUDC courses on the websites of participating universities and departments. For all courses outside of Stony Brook, students should consult with their primary advisor before deciding to enroll. If a student intends to use an IUDC course towards a program requirement (Field, Theme, etc), the Graduate Program Director can grant provisional approval based on an available syllabus or description of course coverage and requirements.  This should be accompanied by a note of endorsement from the student's advisor indicating that the course is a good fit for training in the program. Students can also explore options in other SBU departments and programs by following the same approval process.
