• Study Abroad
  • As an early leader in the field of international education, The New School continues to expand and improve the quality of its study abroad offerings in an increasingly global world. Studying abroad fosters deeper student and university-wide engagement with global issues and cultures.

    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.

    Getting Started

    To get started, review the information on this website and search the study abroad opportunities described on this site and in GoAbroad (under the Academics link in MyNewSchool). You can also schedule an appointment with a Study Abroad service in Starfish or contact your school's or college's study abroad coordinator or your academic advisor. Students interested in Lang programs should please email langstudyabroad@newschool.edu.
