NYU Shanghai

NYU Shanghai is unlike any other university in the world.

As part of an unprecedented international partnership between NYU and East China Normal University (ECNU), the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission (SMEC), and the Pudong New Area Government, NYU Shanghai is designed to prepare its students for lives of discovery, satisfaction, and contribution in the twenty-first century.

NYU Shanghai students spend at least five semesters in Shanghai and at least one semester elsewhere in NYU's global network. Students study with superb teachers who nurture their capacity for original, rigorous, and critical thinking, and with diverse and intellectually gifted classmates. They pursue a liberal education in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and mathematics. They master the skills of cross-cultural effectiveness in a community where half are from China and half are from other lands. They reflect upon the role that great cities play in human progress, and upon the interdependent relationship between China and the rest of the world.
