Global, Urban, and Environmental Studies (GLUE)

Study Abroad

New School students who study abroad start to see the world in new ways.

You’ll cultivate an understanding of other cultures. You’ll become more independent, mature, and self-aware. And you’ll discover skills that will enrich your life academically, professionally, and personally.

As an early leader in the field of international education, The New School continues to expand and improve our study abroad program options because we know that studying abroad fosters deeper student and university-wide engagement with global issues and cultures.

Your study abroad options vary based on your major, but no matter the program, you’ll embark on a life-changing journey where you’re asked to embrace the unfamiliar to gain new perspectives on the world.

To get started, check out the University’s study abroad page to learn more about The New School’s different study abroad opportunities.

The New School’s interdisciplinary undergraduate programs in Global, Urban and Environmental Studies (GLUE) form an academic laboratory for students to delve into the manifold ways in which global forces are redefining our cities and our ecologies. Within a project-centered curriculum students develop expertise through one of our undergraduate majors and a suite of graduate programs. Students learn to synthesize and creatively employ concepts and skills from social sciences, design, and humanities, and to use this knowledge to impact their world.
