New York has a long history of intellectual and cultural exchange of artists and ideas. Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts invites you to continue this dynamic tradition as part of our exchange program. Spend a semester or a year at Lang, and immerse yourself in the energy and excitement of New York City. Located in
the heart of Greenwich Village, Lang is a small liberal arts college that’s part of The New School, a progressive urban university. Lang offers an innovative curriculum, the intimacy of a small college, the resources of a large university, and access to opportunities found only in New York.
Students interested in an international exchange are the kind of adventurous, multicultural, and frequently multilingual students who would thrive in the energetic and creative atmosphere of New York City. The increasingly global context in which we operate rewards those with broad
cultural experiences, able to transition between cultures with ease and adapt to new perspectives on the world.
Immersion in New York CityLang’s curriculum enables you to interact with the city in exciting ways. You might come to understand the immigrant experience through performance or service courses; learn how to view the art of the subway; or look at Greenwich Village from the perspective of the Beat poets. While here, you might also check out
the contemporary art scene in Chelsea and Williamsburg; the poetry clubs and consignment shops in the East Village; or the hipster haunts in the Lower East Side.
A Unique Academic Experience
Lang’s small seminar-style classes are at once intimate and challenging. The seminar format encourages close collaboration and interaction with a stellar faculty of scholars and artist-practitioners. The intimacy and attention of seminars, the curriculum’s rigorous and interdisciplinary themes, and the options for
practice-based learning, all contribute to a special confluence of activist-minded peers that make Lang special.
More than a study abroad program, the exchange program allows students to pursue their studies in New York on joint academic tracks with ease, fulfilling degree requirements without lengthening their time to graduation. All courses are approved and accepted by your home institution. And most importantly, your regular tuition
is charged and paid directly to your home school, allowing you to retain regular funding. The program is designed to minimize the financial barriers otherwise associated with studying abroad.
