First-Year Travel Colloquia

Our first-year scholars have the opportunity to participate in these unique travel programs tied to the curriculum and learning in the first-year seminar course. Domestic and international travel colloquia offer additional insight into the human experience from a variety of perspectives. International travel, in particular, is designed to work in tandem with New York University's commitment to global learning and cooperation.

Over the years, travel colloquia to domestic locations have included Alabama, Atlanta, Georgia, the Gullah Islands, New Orleans, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington D.C. International locations have included Australia, Brazil, Ghana, Greece, Israel, Morocco, Paris, Peru, Senegal, and Spain.

Scholars interested in this option should talk to our program staff.
