Strengthen your global perspective by studying within the NYU global network. Satisfy major requirements by taking MCC field of study courses at the following NYU sites: Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, and Sydney. We strongly encourage you to consider MCC's signature Global Media Scholars program.

MCC in London

Through our MCC in London program, you can choose to enter our major, while immersing yourself for a semester in one of the global capitals of art, business, media, and culture.

Global Media Scholars Program

Our Global Media Scholars program immerses students in the study of global media through NYU's academic sites in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

The Steinhardt Dean's Global Honors Seminars combine a semester-long course at Washington Square with a research-oriented, international travel component lasting 7-10 days. These 4-credit courses are open to honors first-year students and sophomores with qualifying GPAs in all Steinhardt majors. Participation requires special application in the spring. 

The scholarship supports a global study experience for MCC undergraduates who might not otherwise be able to afford one and to encourage global study for students who might not have traveled before. Annually two scholarships (up to $5000 each) are awarded to MCC majors. The funding is applied to the recipient's Spring tuition bill. Evidence of financial need and intent to study away at an NYU site are required.
Deadline: October 1

MCC Global Media Scholars (GMS) have special access to these two departmental stipends. For more information about the GMS awards please contact Ashley Lynch: 

  • The Global Media Scholars Research Fund: supports self-directed student work related to student research inside and outside of the classroom. Each semester Global Media Scholars can devise a research or media project and propose a budget to support their work. Students can apply for funding to kick start a creative project, purchase books, cover travel and fees to attend a conference, or to help offset an unpaid internship. The funding level and number of awards presented varies, and is dependent on the submission pool and amounts requested.
  • The GMS Site Ambassador Program: Site Ambassadors are awarded a $1000 stipend to organize community building events for their GMS cohort, publish social media stories about their academic experiences abroad, and advise their peers. Two awards are presented each semester.

I spent the semester in Berlin, and the Warren Reicher Global Study Scholarship was an essential reason why I was able to do that. In Berlin, I took classes on German literature, asylum-seeking, global education, American culture, and art. All of these topics led me to my thesis focus on German media representations of migration and asylum seekers.”
