Summer 2021 Global Courses are now available to view in the Albert Course Search. Please check out this Summer 2021 Webpage for more details about courses and experiential learning programs.

Initial planned courses for the Fall 2021 semester are now available for you to browse on our webpages. Please note that global courses are available for registration during registration week at your registration appointment time. 

  • View a Google sheet showing the full list of Fall 2021 courses offered from the global sites, which can be filtered by a variety of categories including subject, school, and time zone. Additional courses will be added leading up to the Fall 2021 semester as local conditions allow. 
  • For more details about each course, including a sample syllabus, navigate to the site-specific course listings for the Fall 2021 semester.
  • All courses taught at the global sites are approved by NYU faculty from New York, Abu Dhabi, or Shanghai and count toward degree requirements the same as if they were taught at a degree-granting campus.

Who can take global courses?

  • For the Fall 2021 semester, students may register for global site courses from multiple locations (as well as those offered by their home campus) without applying to study away. 
    • All global site courses listed as “blended” mode in Albert are available for students to choose to take either in-person or fully remotely. Students must attend the course during the listed meeting pattern in Albert (100% synchronously). 
    • Please check with your home school advisor for any school-specific restrictions. 
  • In Fall 2021, courses at NYU Abu Dhabi, New York, and Shanghai are only open to students at their own home campus and students who are studying away at those specific campuses. For example, in order to take a New York course, you must either be a New York home campus student or be an NYUAD or NYUSH student studying away in New York in Fall 2021.
