Living and studying abroad offers the unique opportunity to incorporate the city and its culture into your learning experience. NYU Berlin offers academic programs for the fall or spring semester as well as the full academic year. A variety of J-Term and Summer Programs are also offered. All strive to relate academics to the cultural understanding students will acquire while living in Berlin. 

Courses are taught by lecturers from Berlin’s local universities, such as Humboldt-Universität, Freie Universität and Technische Universität, as well as by established Berlin artists, architects and journalists. You’ll take three to five courses, including one required German language course at your level (the majority of NYU Berlin students have no prior knowledge of German). Content courses are in the fields of art, art history, drama, environmental studies, European studies, German, history, music, politics, psychology, and sociology.
