Undergraduate Semester Away

Embark on a journey that transcends boundaries and enriches your educational journey. At Steinhardt, we pave the way for a seamless academic experience spanning NYC to one of the 15 NYU global locations. Delve into major requirements at your department’s Global Pathway site(s) or explore a myriad of liberal arts and elective offerings across our global network. 

Core Equivalencies

To help students ensure they stay on track for graduation while studying a semester away, we review all global course offerings and designate the Core Curriculum equivalency, where applicable. 

Students work with their academic advisor to review the global course offerings by site and semester, and use the Study Away Core Curriculum Equivalencies list to map out their semester away. 

Global Pathways 

Many students choose to study at one of their department’s Global Pathway sites, which offer courses that fulfill their major and elective requirements. Students may explore the Global Pathways below, and are encouraged to speak with their academic advisor for guidance.
