    COVID-19 Important Information

    The New School Study Abroad office actively monitors and assesses the safety and security of our students participating in study abroad programs. At the start of the spring 2020 semester in January 2020, we initiated our response to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to advise and support students through this public health situation. All students studying abroad in the spring 2020 semester have been advised to return from their study abroad programs. For more details of the impact of the outbreak, the response, and other frequently asked questions concerning COVID-19, please click here.

    Why Go Abroad?

    Students who study abroad learn to look at the world in new ways; cultivate an understanding of and appreciation for other cultures; become more independent, mature, and self-aware; and acquire or improve their foreign language skills. Many discover that the skills they develop benefit their professional careers and enrich their lives.

    A wide variety of study abroad programs are available to you as a New School student, depending on your major. By studying abroad, you embark on a life-changing journey, embracing the unfamiliar, gaining new perspectives on the world, and developing greater cultural sensitivity.
