Continuing Education

From pursuing degrees and certificates for career advancement to meeting a profession’s continuing education requirements to attending liberal arts courses to fulfill one’s love of knowledge, learning is a life-long endeavor.  

Continuing education at NYU links directly to the principles of NYU’s founding, with its emphasis on providing a "rational and practical education fitting for all and graciously open to all."


Today, continuing education encompasses a wide span of programs across NYU’s schools, but it is most fully realized in NYU’s School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS), a global leader in university-based continuing higher education. NYUSPS draws upon strong connections to New York City’s key industries and cultural sectors to support students in attaining their professional goals and personal educational aspirations.

In addition to the highly regarded degree programs offered by its academic departments, NYUSPS offers to the general public multiple educational pathways to professional, intellectual, and creative development through its continuing education programs.
