Undergraduate and Graduate Summer Courses
During the Summer, NYU offers students a wide range of opportunities that are not available to them during the normal school year. Summer courses are generally smaller and more intensive than are courses during the Fall and Spring.
By taking courses such as Audio Mastering, The Art of Sound Reinforcement, Musical Acoustics, Electronic Music Synthesis, or Advanced Computer Music Composition during the Summer, students can earn a full semester’s credit toward their degree.
