U.S. News Highlights Steinhardt’s Flexible Study Abroad Offerings

Steinhardt’s flexible study-abroad offerings were highlighted in a recent U.S. News and World Report article, ‘More Graduate Students Consider Study Abroad’ by Christopher J. Gearon.

“NYU and other schools are trying to accommodate demanding student schedules with flexible offerings, including informal research exchanges, brief summer or inter-session trips, dual or joint degree programs, semester- and year-long programs, and internships,” Gearon wrote.

Erich Dietrich, Steinhardt’s assistant dean for academic and global programs, noted that more students are taking part in the programs because they accommodate the schedules of graduate students who have heavy commitments and ‘tend to be intensively focused on one topic.’

Five years ago, 280 master’s-level students studied abroad under NYU Steinhardt’s programs; this year more than 600 will participate.

The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development is ranked 15th in the 2011 U. S. News and World Report rankings of the country’s top graduate schools of education.

Five of Steinhardt’s education programs are ranked in the top 20. They are:

Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Educational Policy, Secondary Education, and Education Administration/Supervision.
