The International Education program is part of the global mission of New York University to produce professionals who understand the international implications of their responsibilities and have the ability to utilize knowledge across international boundaries. The program develops experts who can design, implement, manage, and evaluate international education programs in schools, colleges, foundations, multinational corporations, and public and private educational and cultural agencies. Guided by career interest, professional experience, and educational background, students select from one of three areas of specialization: (1) global education, (2) international development education, or (3) cross-cultural exchange and training.
Students work with a multidisciplinary faculty, consisting of anthropologists, economists, historians, philosophers, political scientists, and sociologists, who apply the theoretical, conceptual, and methodological advances in the humanities and the social sciences to the analysis of international educational policies and institutions.
Students come from diverse backgrounds and disciplines; many of them bring to the classroom a rich mix of experiences from living, working, and studying overseas.
Students in the M.A. program and the small and highly selective Ph.D. program participate in a job-related internship that provides professional work experience and reinforces academic skills. Internships may be arranged in the United States or abroad through such organizations as the United Nations, the Institute for International Education, Metro International, the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and the Asia Society.
Our summer graduate abroad programs provide opportunities for cross-cultural learning and study.
New York University is a member of the Association of American Universities and is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
