Spring Quarter: The Global City

Often called the world’s capital, New York City is home to the United Nations, world-class art collections and activities, offices of almost every major company in the world, and the immigrant communities of the most diverse borough in the United States (Queens). The Spring quarter classes and internships will investigate how New York, as a complex, dynamic city, shapes and is shaped by concepts of globalism in various fields, industries, and lived experience.


New York is a truly global city, offering a myriad of opportunities for every student. The Internship Program Manager will work hand-in-hand with students to find the internships that best fit their academic and personal areas of interest. Potential internships include: NYC Commision on Human Rights, Endeavor Global, Sylvia Rivera Law Project, Sidewalk Labs and many others.


In addition to the required New York City Seminar, students choose two additional courses from the elective courses. Classes meet during the day on Wednesdays and other weekday evenings. Class offerings may vary slightly from year to year.
