NYU Precollege offers rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience academic and student life at New York University. This academically rigorous program places high school students in six-week, intensive, college-level courses with current college students and allows them to gain academic credit, which may be applied to a future degree.
Courses are available in more than 30 academic areas. With NYU Precollege, you can explore the archeological history of New York City, visit major New York sports facilities and learn the business of sports management, begin to master a foreign language, practice the art of journalism, or delve into business while going behind-the-scenes at Manhattan hotels and restaurants.
If you are looking for a more structured experience, many of our schools and colleges at NYU offer additional programs for high school students.
NYU Precollege students who are enrolled in at least one credit-bearing course have the opportunity to participate in a free, five-week noncredit workshop taught by NYU's distinguished writing experts (required for residential students). The College Writing Workshop (EXPOS-UA 30) is found in the course catalog under the College of Arts and Science's Expository Writing program.
In addition to the general sections of the course, there are several designated sections tailored for students who are interested in science. Course readings in these sections will focus on current issues in the worlds of science and medicine. The science sections of the course are indicated in the notes section of the course description.
