With virtually every field becoming increasingly global in nature, McGhee has worked diligently to expand its own teaching and learning activities to provide students with a multidimensional, international education that serves to broaden their perspective and to enhance their learning experience. NYU-SCPS of which McGhee is a unit, also has developed numerous partnerships around the world with institutions of higher learning, corporations, and nonprofit organizations that expand research opportunities and provide the basis for a continuous exchange of ideas among faculty members and students on a global basis.
As McGhee student, we encourage you to take advantage of our study abroad opportunities. Recent travel/study options have included: Al Andalus: The Muslim Legacy of Spain; Field Studies: East Africa; From Commune to City–State in Tuscany; and Modern British Drama in London.
