Gallatin MA Study Away

Study Away Opportunities for Gallatin MA Students

There are several opportunities for study abroad for MA students, although participating in a full semester abroad is not an option in this program.

A number of NYU schools offer graduate-level study abroad courses in the summer. Gallatin MA students have taken Steinhardt and Tisch courses abroad in the summer, for example. You can find these courses in the public course search under summer and graduate level or on the websites of these NYU schools.
