Gallatin's intensive travel courses are small, discussion-based seminars led by Gallatin faculty which are designed to provide a unique and in-depth exploration of a particular cultural or historical topic found within a foreign country or region. Students experience each location hands-on through visits to museums, galleries, and various sites of historical, cultural, and political significance.
For these courses, the School is looking for dedicated, inquisitive students who are eager to build a community with professors and fellow students while abroad. Students are encouraged to apply early since most programs are filled on a rolling basis and only completed applications are reviewed. Please note that courses vary from year to year.

Students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and be in good academic and disciplinary standing. Most Gallatin travel courses are open to undergraduate students of all NYU schools, and some are open to students outside NYU. Please see individual course sites for additional details regarding eligibility.
