Undergraduate Admissions

Undergraduate Degrees for Every Phase of Your Academic Journey

With an NYUSPS undergraduate education, you will build an academic and professional foundation for a lifetime.

We offer three traditional undergraduate degrees in real estate, hotel and tourism management, and sports management. Admissions for these programs is handled through NYU Admissions. These degees provide a stellar NYU education combined with an immersive approach to professional studies in emerging industries. 

For post-traditional students—those who may have started a degree, taken a break, and now seek to return to school to complete their studies; or those who are considering earning a degree for the first time but who are not pursuing a traditional path—the NYUSPS Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies (DAUS) provides programs of study that afford a comprehensive learning experience, while providing the support you need to balance the obligations of a busy personal and professional life. Admissions for DAUS programs is handled through the NYUSPS Office of Admissions
