Students from around the globe come to New York City to pursue their passions in a rigorous, academic setting. With five distinct programs to choose from, you have the unique opportunity to explore an area of interest on a deeper level through both in-class discussions and city exploration!


Students take two courses of their choice over the span of four weeks. As part of the program, students both participate in admissions and career workshops and explore New York through class trips and excursions.


For one week, students take one course of their choice in the morning. Afternoons are free for students to explore what the city has to offer!


Students delve into gender issues, social change, and leadership in this intensive 9-day program. Comprised of morning lectures and afternoon workshops, students develop a deeper understanding of leadership through a feminist lens.


In this rigorous ten day program, students explore dance from all angles. From dance theory and history classes to technique classes at the Alvin Ailey Extension School, students have the opportunity to delve into the dance world from every perspective. As part of the program, students have the opportunity to observe performances of some of the world's best and perform their own work.


In just 10 days, students learn how to turn an idea into a promising business. Students attend class, workshops, and site visits to build their entrepreneurial skills and gain a better understanding of the start-up world.
