New York University - Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development
New York, NY
At NYU Steinhardt we believe that the successful professional is one who sees connections between communities and cultures. Education is an instrument for change and the means for a better quality of life for people throughout the world.
We enroll nearly 6400 students each year -- 2500 undergraduates and 3900 masters, advanced certificate, and doctoral students to create a highly diverse mix of students -- geographically, ethnically, and culturally.
Our nearly 20 undergraduate programs in applied psychology, studio art, teacher education, health, media studies, music and music professions, and educational theatre combine inquiry in the liberal arts and sciences, global study, and hands-on learning. Internships and fieldwork provide unparalleled opportunities to apply theory to practice.
Summer is a wonderful time of the year to be in New York City. Some academic programs and departments use summer as a regular semester and offer a full complement of courses, enabling students to complete their degrees in a shorter period of time. Others offer electives, experimental courses, and required courses to help students accelerate their studies.
We also place great importance on preparing our undergraduate and graduate students to live and work in a global society. NYU Steinhardt offers academic year and summer study abroad programs that span more than a dozen fields in education, health, media, and the arts.
The center of NYU is its Washington Square campus in the heart of Greenwich Village. One of the city's most creative and energetic communities, the Village is a historic neighborhood that has attracted generations of writers, musicians, artists, and intellectuals. NYU, in keeping with its founder's vision, is “in and of the city”: the University – which has no walls and no gates – is deeply intertwined with New York City, drawing inspiration from its vitality.
