Summer in New York
Barnard College's Summer in New York program offers
young men and women incredible opportunities to explore
New York City both in and out of the classroom. The
city plays an important role in the design of the courses.
Academic course offerings are varied, and classes are
limited in size so that you can receive individual attention,
engage in lively discussion, and work on independent
projects. Your studies could include visiting an art
gallery, attending a poetry slam, or meeting city leaders.
Evenings and weekends are packed with organized trips
to tourist sights like the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller
Center. You may also catch a film at an outdoor festival,
hang out in Central Park or catch the taping of a TV
show. In short, you'll get an unforgettable taste of
your future while experiencing life in the big city.
The Life After College series, offered
in conjunction with the Summer in New York
program, gives students a taste of both the occupational
and the neighborhood diversity that makes New York such
an exciting place. Each week, small escorted groups
visit leading institutions and businesses, meet with
professionals, take "inside" tours, and learn
about career opportunities. Elective workshops on applying
to college, interviewing strategies, and study skills
are also offered.
