Study and Intern in the Nation's Capital at NYU Washington, DC


No global network would be complete without a location in the US capital, the seat of the federal government, home to 174 embassies, the headquarters of international policy-making bodies, think tanks, and the site of many museums, monuments and cultural institutions. Concentrated study and research in an array of subjects, including American studies, art history, business, environmental studies, history, journalism, metropolitan studies, politics, prelaw, and public policy is enhanced by access to Washington’s distinctive intellectual, political, and cultural life. Students learn under the guidance of a world-class faculty, and engage in carefully selected and academically supervised internships with elected officials, government agencies, international organizations, NGOs, museums, media, and other institutions.

Students live and attend class just blocks from the White House, the World Bank, and the Smithsonian museums at the Constance Milstein and Family Global Academic Center, which features seminar rooms, an auditorium, reading room, and student lounges on each floor. The center also serves as a venue for dynamic public programming featuring leaders in government, business, and culture as well as notable public figures as part of the Weissberg Forum for Discourse in the Public Square. These events encourage students to discuss topical issues with distinguished speakers and contribute to an academic environment that deepens their understanding of public policy, civic activism, cultural studies, international concerns, green initiatives, media matters, political debates, legal issues and business affairs. A large NYU alumni network provides additional opportunities for students, including support for our mentoring program.

NYU Washington, DC has been made possible through the generous leadership and support of alumni and friends, who have facilitated the University's purchase of this global academic site.  To insure that the Center reaches its full potential, NYU will need additional capital, programming and endowment support.  Naming opportunities are available for a variety of spaces within the Center.  For more information, please contact Debra A. LaMorte, Senior Vice President, Office of University Development and Alumni Relations, at (212) 998-6411.
