The NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs (CGA) provides students with unique opportunities to pursue their academic and professional interests abroad through its Global Field Intensives. These immersive courses allow students to maximize their in-country academic experience by engaging in comprehensive pre-departure research and project planning. Rather than simply attending a series of lectures and site visits while abroad, students actively shape their in-country experience and research. Global Field Intensives incorporate the following elements:

  • pre-departure class sessions and consultation with professors that allow students to develop meaningful research goals in advance of each trip
  • partnerships with local academic institutions, as well as offices in the government, private, and international/multilateral sectors, offer unparalleled access to experts and practitioners
  • site visits at each destination translate ideas into action, and students network with speakers and organizations to advance their academic and professional contacts
