Students complement their GLS course work with a wide array of electives in GLS and in other NYU schools chosen in careful consultation with their advisor. These may include GLS Economics I (macroeconomics), GLS Economics II (microeconomics), and GLS Creative Writing, as well as advanced language instruction in the College of Arts and Science (CAS). Students also may pursue over forty all-university minors, including several languages and Economics in CAS, Business Studies in CAS and Stern School of Business, and Communication Studies in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
Global Study electives:
During a student's year abroad, the electives taken will be guided by careful advising to ensure a coherent program, including (when appropriate) progress toward a minor in an area relevant to the student’s global focus. In addition, advisors will help students gear electives to the particular academic emphases and geographic advantages of the site so that students have an educational experience unique to the site at which they are studying. The goal is that students not simply have a “study abroad” experience, but that they immerse themselves in the site’s culture.
