Steinhardt’s flexible study-abroad offerings were highlighted in a recent U.S. News and World Report article, ‘More Graduate Students Consider Study Abroad’ by Christopher J. Gearon.
“NYU and other schools are trying to accommodate demanding student schedules with flexible offerings, including informal research exchanges, brief summer or inter-session trips, dual or joint degree programs, semester- and year-long programs, and internships,” Gearon wrote.
Erich Dietrich, Steinhardt’s assistant dean for academic and global programs, noted that more students are taking part in the programs because they accommodate the schedules of graduate students who have heavy commitments and ‘tend to be intensively focused on one topic.’
Five years ago, 280 master’s-level students studied abroad under NYU Steinhardt’s programs; this year more than 600 will participate.
