Study Abroad

NYU Steinhardt embraces diversity and multiculturalism both inside the classroom and around the world.

The Office of Global Affairs provides opportunities for students to cultivate intercultural perspectives, academic and artistic excellence, and an appreciation for differences across sectors of human development. We offer an array of interdisciplinary courses that provide immersion in a global location, contact with local experts, and experiential learning across the fields of health, visual and performing arts, media, and education.

"Study abroad is one of the best tools for student development. It can help you truly challenge your beliefs, values, prior learnings and help shape those ideas and feelings through each new experience and connection that one makes."

"Everything we did was grounded in the course. We got to really explore the culture, but, in the end, everything came back to what we learned from the textbooks. It was amazing to see it all play out in a real-world situation—you don’t get that with other classes."

Alice, "Dean’s Global Honors Seminar: Families, Schools and Child Development" in Tel Aviv
