The Freshman Year Away
As an NYU Liberal Studies freshman abroad, you will have the unique opportunity of completing your first-year degree requirements at one of NYU's exciting centers in Florence, London, or Paris. (Coming Soon: Washington, DC)
Students take pre-approved courses that allow for them to stay on track with their degree requirements and graduate on time. Programs are uniquely designed for Liberal Studies Freshmen students and run for the full academic year.
Students will follow the same rigorous Liberal Arts curriculum as NYU’s Washington Square Campus and make a seamless transition to their sophomore year in New York.
Prospective and incoming students can educate themselves on making the decision to start their freshmen year away by visiting the Admissions website. They can also refer to the sites in the left-hand column for information about making the selection.
Admitted and current students should refer to their respective Freshmen Year Abroad blogs (links to the left) for more information on current deadlines and advising issues.
