The Chemistry Department encourages study away by its majors, and has created pathways which enable students to do so without hindering their progress toward a degree and/or satisfying the pre-health requirements.
Presently, the best option for Chemistry and Biochemistry majors is to study away at NYU Tel Aviv (http://www.nyu.edu/global/global-academic-centers/telaviv.html) in the Fall semester of their junior year, when the science courses offered are the same they would normally take at NYU in New York. They are as follows ( http://www.nyu.edu/global/global-academic-centers/telaviv/academics/courses-fall-2015.html ):
CHEM-UA 9651 Physical Chemistry: Quantum Mechanics & Spectroscopy
CHEM-UA 9881 Biochemistry I
CHEM-UA 9997 Advanced Independent Study and Research
PHYS-UA 9011 General Physics I
PHYS-UA 9071 Introductory Experimental Physics (Laboratory)
In addition, the students are most likely to take these two courses:
GLBL-UA 9110 Global Orientations: Israeli Society and Culture (required)
HBRJD-UA 9072 The Languages of Israel
The Chemistry department is working with NYU Tel Aviv and the distinguished scientists teaching the science courses there on arranging research opportunities for students at the top academic institutions in the vicinity, such as Tel Aviv University, the Weizmann Institute of Science, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. For additional information, please contact the Global Coordinator for Chemistry, Prof. Zlatko Bacic email@example.com.
NYU London ( http://www.nyu.edu/global/global-academic-centers/london.html ) and NYU Sydney ( http://www.nyu.edu/global/global-academic-centers/sydney.html ) offer a more limited selection of science courses such as Organic Chemistry and General Physics. Therefore, students considering these two centers for study away should consult with his or her advisor and/or the Director of Undergraduate Studies, to ensure that spending a semester there would not interfere with their progress toward the degree.
