Registration is open for Summer Journalism @ NYU!

All materials for international student applications must be received by April 1

Summer Journalism at NYU is an experience you won't forget. We have a variety of classes for pre-college and college students, and one graduate multimedia production course. Our course highlight for the week is:

Eat NY covers the world of food journalism, with a hearty emphasis on what's available here in New York.

  • read classic books and immerse yourself in food blogs and websites;
  • learn how to research, interview and write a profile piece;
  • explore all aspects of a restaurant review, and learn how to write one yourself;
  • delve into trend-spotting, and
  • investigate the politics and economics of food.
(Available to undergraduates; offered first session only.)

Regarding other courses, this summer we've added three new ones to our already diverse line-up--Sports!, The Profilers, and a classic from our regular academic year, The Beat, with a long-time favorite professor, Frank Flaherty, which runs as a special 9-week course. First session courses start May 26 and second session courses run from July 7 to August 13.
