NYU Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

NYU Buenos Aires is an exceptional and intimate learning community in one of the world’s great cosmopolitan cities. Students visiting the BA site have the opportunity to pursue course work from a range of disciplinary perspectives while enhancing their language skills. The BA curriculum centers around questions of social justice as well as the role of public intellectuals, cultural memory, media and the arts. Classes offered in English and Spanish use Buenos Aires itself as a window onto Latin American culture and the geopolitics of the global south. Daily life at the site is complemented by a robust offering of extra and co-curricular offerings as well as by strategic collaborations forged with local institutions, including art museums, heritage sites, civic and state institutions, faculties of law, medicine and health professions.
