NYU Steinhardt maintains its commitment to global learning by offering a variety of remote summer courses featuring international perspectives, virtual exchange, and cross-cultural engagement.

Undergraduate courses examine comparative perspectives on the Mediterranean diet, and the philosophy/practice of collective consciousness in South Africa. Course links are below.  Students with remaining flexible semester credits from the 2020-21 academic year will have the option to apply those credits to summer courses for no additional tuition.

There are four graduate courses available this summer focused on Educational Theatre, International Education, Nutrition and Food Studies, and Teaching and Learning.  Course links are below.  Casey Lum invites students interested in foreign and bilingual language education to examine comparative perspectives from Brazil, China, Egypt, and other countries including the U.S.  Nancy Smithner continues a long-standing partnership with drama practitioners and theatre artists in Ireland to investigate storytelling and playwriting. Elizabeth King’s course invites students to engage with professionals in the field to learn how international development education actors address the challenges and opportunities of COVID-19 in their work. Lisa Sasson leads students on an exploration of nutrition, food and culture in Israel, Italy, and Spain. Undergraduate students with 96 credits or more are also eligible to participate.
