English Doctoral Consortium

Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC)

Fordham participates in a consortium with several universities in the New York City area. With the permission of both the home and host institutions, PhD students can take one or more courses at any other school in the consortium. Students register and receive credit at their home institution, and the home institution covers tuition costs.

Membership in the IUDC allows our English PhD students the chance to take courses with a wide array of internationally recognized faculty from various fields of study. The institutions that participate in the graduate school consortium include:

  • Columbia University
  • New York University
  • Princeton University
  • Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY)
  • The New School for Social Research
  • Rutgers University
  • Stony Brook University
  • Teacher's College, Columbia University

Registering for a IUDC Course:

To register for courses through the consortium PhD students must have completed at least one year of full-time doctoral study at Fordham. Only one consortium course may be taken each semester, and courses may not be taken through the consortium during the summer. To register for consortium courses, see the IUDC Registration Form. Deadlines for making consortium course changes (add, drop, change of grade type) are governed by the GSAS academic calendar.

See the GSAS Policies and Procedures Guidebook for more information about IUDC registration.
