Global Degree Programs

SPS offers several globally focused graduate degree programs in a variety of academic disciplines. Visit the below pages for more information about any of these programs.

Global Field Intensives

Each year, SPS offers a variety of Global Field Intensive (GFI) courses around the world that will expand students' personal, academic, and professional perspectives and prepare them for a competitive global job market. These short-term, credit-bearing courses are specific to each SPS Division and are taken as part of a specific degree program's curriculum. Some courses are available only to students within their respective degree programs, while others are open to those outside of the program.

IMPORTANT: Due to the possibility of program cancellations, students should not purchase flight tickets for their chosen GFI until specifically instructed to do so by their Division or faculty member. Further, students are strongly encouraged to purchase refundable tickets or flight insurance for added protection, as NYU will not provide reimbursement for canceled flights.
