NYU Sydney is located in Australia's largest and most cosmopolitan city, providing students the unparalleled opportunity to live and study in a hub of commerce, culture, and communication in the Asia-Pacific region.
NYU Sydney's academic center is located in a recently renovated historic building in a central area of Sydney. The facility houses the administrative offices, classrooms, computer lab, and reading room. A common area doubles as a study lounge and space for social gatherings.
Students enrolled in courses at NYU Sydney will be able to explore Aboriginal art and culture as the longest continuous civilization on the planet. Courses will introduce Australia's rich history of immigrant communities that formed this continent-sized nation with unique and compelling characteristics. The curriculum will at first offer classes in anthropology, English, environmental studies, journalism, and communications. A limited number of courses will be offered in the first year with plans to add more academic areas in future semesters.
Leading professors will be drawn from Sydney and the local region. Faculty led study trips which take students beyond the areas visited by casual tourists will be an essential part of the program. In future semesters, NYU Sydney will provide students with credit-bearing internship opportunities with local media establishments and other businesses.
NYU Sydney faculty and staff are committed to creating an environment where active learning and exploration are the norm. Courses and projects rooted in the community, field-based research, internship opportunities as well as chances to travel throughout the city, surrounding neighborhoods and region will give students a thorough experience of local domains, society and culture.
