Why Study History Abroad?
Studying away at one of NYU’s many global sites affords students the invaluable opportunity to experience the discipline of history in an alternative academic and cultural setting. Studying away can open doors to the discovery of unexpected areas of interest, as well as provide new insight about already established historical perspectives and research topics.
Where Can I Go?
The History Department is committed to offering courses at the majority of sites within NYU's global network, so that our majors can progress towards their degree no matter their chosen location.

In addition, if study away courses are not taken at an NYU site, students may petition up to three outside courses to count toward their major requirement. They may do so by sending a copy of the syllabus and attaching a course petition to the Undergraduate Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Director of Undergraduate Studies will review the course petition and students should receive a response regarding their petition in about one week.
When Should I Go?
The NYU History Department encourages majors and minors to study away during the fall or spring semester of their junior year, but schedules vary and some students may need to study away during an alternate semester.
