Gallatin Travel Courses


Gallatin offers small, intensive, discussion-based seminars led by Gallatin faculty away from NYU's Washington Square campus. These travel courses are designed for students to explore particular cultural or historical topics in-depth in another country or region. Students experience the location hands-on through visits to museums and sites of historical, cultural, and political significance.

Courses and topics vary each year. For these unique courses, the School seeks dedicated, inquisitive students who are eager to build a community with professors and fellow students. Interested students are encouraged to apply early, as most programs fill on a rolling basis.


Minimum 3.0 GPA and good academic & disciplinary standing. Most Gallatin travel courses are open to undergraduates of all NYU schools, and some are open to graduate students and students outside NYU. See course pages for additional details.

Financial Aid

Students are advised to search and apply early for financial aid, if needed. See our Financial Aid for Study Away page for opportunities.
