FALL 2014 UPDATE - Due to concerns related to the ongoing conflict in Israel and the surrounding areas, coursework has been suspended at NYU Tel Aviv for the Fall, 2014 semester. We are hopeful that conditions will improve soon, and are planning for a resumption of classes in January, 2015. More
At NYU Tel Aviv, students experience life in one of the world's most intriguing and multidimensional cities. A vibrant coastal metropolis on the Mediterranean, Tel Aviv is the cultural, financial, and technological center of Israel. Students explore this truly global city and acquire a sophisticated understanding of Israel, the Middle East and the interrelationships between cultures, political movements, and religious traditions. Students benefit from high caliber local professors who teach students in areas such as journalism, politics, Hebrew and Arabic. Students connect with local culture through experiential learning/internships, partnerships with a local university and excursions to surrounding areas in Israel.
Of course! Tel Aviv is good city from which to travel around the region. Past students have visited Oman, Cyprus, and Turkey, to name a few.
