New York University is the largest independent research university in the United States, and is unlike any other institution of higher education. NYU has degree-granting campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, and 11 global academic centers around the world.
NYU's more than 20,000 undergraduates come from all 50 states and over 130 countries. NYU is both the No. 1 sender and receiver of students studying internationally, and we believe our global network raises the level of discourse in the classroom and provides a modern education for our global society. NYU’s global sites are fully owned, operated, and staffed by NYU, creating a seamless experience for students.
The energy and resources within New York City, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai serve as extensions of our campuses which, by design, are in and of their cities, providing unique opportunities for research, internships, and job placement. Within our New York campus, NYU has 10 undergraduate schools and colleges nine of which surround Washington Square and one, our school of engineering, in downtown Brooklyn.
Students choose from thousands of courses in over 230 areas of study. Despite our size, we have a remarkably intimate academic environment on our campuses. In fact, our student to faculty ratio in New York is 10:1 and our average class size is fewer than 30 students.
A faculty of renowned scholars, researchers, and artists teach our students who take courses both inside and outside a chosen major, providing breadth across different disciplines and depth in a chosen area of concentration. NYU's urban locations enables us to attract stunning diversity in academia talent, with faculty who have won awards ranging from the Pulitzer Prize and Abel Prize in Mathematics to the Grammys and Tony’s. Being in cities at the crossroads of the world enables us to offer students thousands of internship opportunities and comprehensive career preparation during their undergraduate studies. For the class of 2016, over 95% of our students were employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation. NYU is also ranked #1 for graduate employability by Times Higher Education.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
