This Study Abroad Course enables you to experience the art and culture of New York City firsthand. You can participate in art in a way unavailable on campus as well as be involved in a multicultural and multilingual city. 

Each day’s events will correspond to the gallery and museum exhibits at that specific time within the context of the local flavor of the area.  The group will visit major comprehensive museums, galleries, and artist studios including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Chelsea, Uptown and SoHo galleries, and others.  Visits will also be made to Grand Central Station, Ground Zero, Wall Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, and many other New York City landmarks.
