The Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU Steinhardt invites accepted external transfer students to begin coursework at our NYU Paris location beginning in the Fall. Students will enroll in two MCC core classes (MCC-UE 9001 Intro to Media Studies and MCC-UE 9003 History of Media and Communication) as well as a French language course and a liberal arts elective, both of which can be used toward their degree requirements. Please visit the Department of Media Culture and Communication website for more information.

Registration priority in MCC-UE 9001 and MCC-UE 9003 will be given to transfer students accepted into the MCC program. Other students may be able to register as space remains available.

Music and Performing Arts

Private Lessons

Private lessons are available only to Steinhardt performance majors for whom lessons are required. Students may register for only one private lesson per semester.



Online/Remote-Taught Courses available to Study Away Students

Students may compliment their local course load by enrolling in an online or remote-taught course. Some of NYU's online courses can be found using the Instruction Mode filter in the Albert Course Search. Please keep in mind that you must be enrolled in at least 12 credits of courses at your study away site (remote-taught/online courses do not count towards the 12 credit minimum requirement). Note, online/remote taught courses are not scheduled on the same session as the courses offered by the study away site, add/drop dates and other academic deadlines will vary. Please refer to Albert course notes for more details. Online/remote taught course commitments should not interfere with student attendance in local classes and required program activities (including orientation).
