January and Spring Break

Graduate Study Abroad

The University is continuing to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on future travel. In the event that travel is not possible, Steinhardt Global Affairs will work with faculty on a case-by-case basis to explore alternatives. Global course options will be kept current on the Steinhardt Global Affairs website. Please watch for further announcements regarding the application process for January, spring break, and summer 2021 global courses.

Intensive, graduate-level study abroad courses with travel during January and spring break count toward your Spring course load and tuition. Any financial aid you receive for the Spring semester will apply. Courses are open to graduate students at all NYU schools and most are open to senior-level undergraduates with permission of the instructor. Students at other universities may also receive credit where applicable, and professionals are welcome to apply.
