The Program:

The Dual Degree

  • A Dual Degree with NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Science and NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development’s Costume Studies, Food Studies, and Media, Culture, and Communication programs trains academic librarians who will work as subject specialists in a variety of settings, including academic libraries, museums, cultural institutions of all types, corporate settings, and archives. Please see this page for details on this program. 

The Faculty:

  • Palmer faculty represent a wealth of experience and interests. Not only do our full-time faculty teach and counsel our students, but we have access to the best of the best in the way of working professionals from a variety of New York City institutions, from universities like Columbia, New York University, Hunter, to stellar cultural institutions like the New York Public Library, New-York Historical Society, The Grolier Club, and others.
  • Our faculty advisors work with students in a variety of specializations.


  • Students may apply for fall, spring or summer admission. Applicants apply to Post and once admitted may take classes at any of our sites. No need to specify Post or Manhattan when applying.
  • Admission is on a rolling basis. Once the LIU Post Office of Graduate Admissions has ALL the necessary materials (all transcripts, two references, completed application, personal statement, resume) applicants usually hear back within three weeks. Once admitted, students may take classes at any of Palmer’s sites.
  • GREs are not required for anyone with a 3.0 or better on the overall undergraduate cumulative average OR for anyone who has completed another master’s or professional degree.
  • Interested students may take up to six credits (two courses) prior to admission by applying for non-matriculated, personal enrichment, auditor status. Please understand that there is no financial aid available for students who are not matriculated. The earned credits will be applied to the official record once the student is matriculated.
  • Students may transfer in up to six credits.
