Starting in the spring of 2018, students at NAC&U member campuses will be able to study in the Big Apple as part of Manhattan College’s study-away Semester in New York City program. This opportunity is one of several Signature Experiences offered through NAC&U’s U.S.-based study away program among its member campuses nationwide.
Signature Experiences take advantage of an institution’s location and expertise to provide tailored courses and hands-on learning in a specific area, such as Entertainment and Music Business in Nashville at Belmont University and Meteorology in the Midwest at Valparaiso University.
The Semester in New York City at Manhattan College is based in Urban Studies and will include:
Classes in urban studies, including faculty-led field trips around NYC
Full integration into Manhattan College life, including a room in the residence halls, meal plan, and access to all student services
Co-curricular opportunities to enjoy all that New York City has to offer, including events organized by the College’s Slice of New York City club, Residence Life’s Saturdays in the City program, and Campus Ministry and Social Action initiatives.
In addition to multidisciplinary urban studies courses students will be able to join other classes needed for their degrees, space permitting. For more on the program, please visit Manhattan College’s website. The deadline to apply is October 15.
