New York University’s January Term allows students more flexibility and new scheduling options. NYU students, Visiting students and International students have the opportunity to earn major/minor credit or explore a new interest. During this time, students can take advantage of intensive study at one of the foremost research and teaching universities in the United States as well as have a chance to enjoy New York City during a bustling and exciting time of year.
Oftentimes the fall and spring semesters can be overly hectic for students – a full-time course load, student club responsibilities, work, internship commitments, and social obligations. This busy time forces students to focus mainly on their academic progress which doesn’t always allow freedom to explore a new interest or take advantage of the many cultural resources that originally drew them to New York City. January Term provides an array of courses enabling students to earn academic credit (major, minor, or elective) in courses that are in high–demand, to accelerate degree completion and to concentrate on personal interests.
