New York City Program

New York City has consistently emerged as the sole metropolis in North America and one of the few in the world to be considered truly global in its impact. Few other cities can parallel its collection of art, cultural experiences, and history. Scarce American communicative, mediated, and social developments or movements occurred outside of the purview and subsequent impact of New York City. Clearly, New York has emerged as more than a mere metropolitan area but has instead become an icon of modern civic life. This program will investigate the communicative components of New York City by focusing on its neighborhoods, organizations, and institutions. Students will also undertake an internship as part of this study-away experience and attend regular events and excursions. Programs available in summer.
