Studying at NYU Berlin enables you to immerse yourself in the city’s rich history and culture as you examine some of the world’s most significant developments in your courses.

NYU Berlin offers programming throughout the spring and fall semesters, as well as selected courses in the January and Summer Terms. You may choose courses from fields such as art, art history, environmental studies, European studies, German studies, history, politics, psychology, and sociology, in addition to one required German language course at your level. NYU Berlin also offers two special programs in Acting and Recorded Music. Courses are taught by lecturers from Berlin’s local universities (e.g. Humboldt-Universität, Freie Universität and Technische Universität) and by established Berlin artists, political consultants and journalists. Emphasis is placed on experienced-based learning, learning in place, and on a socially engaged academic practice to expand on your leadership skills and expertise in your field of study.

We continuously diversify and innovate our teaching materials and methods to incorporate the variety of majors and learners in our classrooms. Our programming – both inside and outside the classroom – offers you the opportunity to enter a community of co-learners, including students and faculty from local universities, NGOs and other partners who bring together expertise from a variety of disciplines. At NYU Berlin, we are committed to building a community that reflects and enacts the values of inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity, and applies these values as a foundation for academic excellence.
