Your Professors

What makes NYU faculty members ideal graduate teachers and advisers is something more than just the honors they've won (four Nobel and Crafoord Prizes, five Pulitzers, 11 MacArthurs, and dozens of Guggenheims just recently, to name a few); there's no better type of instructor and mentor to engage and push you academically while connecting you to the "real world" of your field.

Your Alumni

As a graduate, you will join NYU's vast network of over 470,000 alumni spread throughout 183 countries. Among them stand countless leaders, researchers, artists, and visionaries recognized as MacArthur "Genius" Fellows and Nobel Laureates. Many graduates who came before you have already built connections in business, government, and the arts, and they appreciate the NYU experience you share.

The world's greatest urban learning laboratory

Learning is meant for the real world, and NYU students benefit from an exceptional combination of scholarship and real-world application. Our campus is not walled but is woven intentionally into the fabric of the city. The university is a truly urban institution, embracing the most diverse, exciting, and important city in the world.

There is no better destination to learn, to engage, to be challenged, and to live.
