First Year Immersion Program

  • Between 2010 and 2015, Eugene Lang College partnered with Global Citizen Year, an internationally recognized organization that seeks to unleash the potential of the next generation of global leaders. During this time, Lang/Global Citizen Year Fellows participated in an intensive ten-month “bridge year” of service learning and leadership training in the developing world, earning up to a year’s worth of credit toward graduation from The New School.

    Beginning in fall 2016, we will launch a Lang-designed first-year-abroad program that exposes first-year students to issues around development, social justice, and sustainability. The program will include experiential and project-based learning, language immersion, internships, and intercultural experience. To learn more about this opportunity, contact Matthew Walters, assistant dean of Student Affairs and Global Initiatives.
