Our two and four-week programs bring students to the center of culture and commerce for an unforgettable summer experience.

Each two-week course draws on the expertise and unrivaled access of The New York Times and encourages students to take their learning beyond the classroom and into the real world. Working with award-winning journalists from The Times and expert practitioners from across the city, students will explore their passions and learn firsthand how ideas take shape, forming the industries of today and the creative enterprises of tomorrow.

With New York City as their home and classroom, Summer Academy students will join the ranks of many of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers and dreamers. From New York’s libraries and museums to world-class performing arts institutions, the city is rich in creativity and inspiration and its resources are seemingly unlimited. Summer Academy offers two levels of engagement for students from both New York and around the world. Students have the option of living on campus in the university dormitories or commuting to class from their local residence.

Students in the residential program stay in residence halls in the heart of New York City. Students are overseen by residential program staff. The location equips students with easy access to Central Park, Times Square, Columbus Circle and the Hudson River — the perfect starting point to explore everything the city has to offer. Residential students participate in a rich set of evening and weekend activities to complement the academic program.

Students in the day program commute to campus on weekday mornings to participate in the academic program. Day students have the option of staying for dinner and may choose to participate in evening and weekend activities.
