Public Engagement

Summer Intensive

  • MA TESOL students interested in studying on-site at The New School's Greenwich Village campus can expedite their studies by taking up to 12 credits (four courses) in our six-week summer intensive program. This is an opportunity to meet and learn from our distinguished instructors, interact with your classmates face-to-face, and experience a summer in New York City. If you are not a native speaker of English, it's an opportunity to be completely immersed in the language and apply your language skills in a vibrant cosmopolitan setting.


    Affordable housing is available in university residence halls. You must apply separately for university housing. Email and identify yourself as a TESOL summer intensive student.

    For information about registration and answers to your questions, contact the English Language Studies office: 212.229.5372 or

    Co-Curricular and Extracurricular activities

    The summer intensive curriculum includes seminars, guest lectures, field trips, and workshops. We encourage you to take advantage of the cultural opportunities New York offers beyond the classroom in your own time: See a Broadway play, enjoy a concert in Central Park or at a jazz club, and explore the historical sites, landmarks, and ethnic neighborhoods vital to the city's character.
