About New York University Shanghai

NYU Shanghai is China’s first Sino-US research university and the third degree-granting campus of the NYU Global Network. We were founded in 2012 by New York University and East China Normal University with the support of the city of Shanghai and the district of Pudong.

NYU Shanghai seeks to cultivate globally-minded graduates through innovative teaching, world-class research, and a commitment to public service.

Our student body currently consists of 1,300 undergraduate and graduate students, half of whom are from China. Students from the United States and some 70 other countries represent the other half. Our faculty of renowned scholars, innovators, and educators are recruited from the world’s best research universities.

In teaching, NYU Shanghai aspires to prepare its students for lives of discovery, satisfaction, and contribution. Students at NYU Shanghai will study with world-class faculty who nurture their capacity for original, rigorous, and critical thinking and with diverse and intellectually gifted classmates. They will pursue a liberal arts and sciences education in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and mathematics while immersing themselves in English, the language of international communication. They will master cross-cultural skills in a community where half of the student body hail from China and half represent countries from around the world. Finally, NYU Shanghai students will learn the role that great cities play in human progress and the interdependent relationship between China and other countries.

In research, NYU Shanghai aspires to produce original, rigorous, and important insights across a broad set of academic domains. Such insights do more than extend existing knowledge in predictable ways; they provide fresh understanding that is fully consistent with our observations and, at the same time, promise to have a significant influence on the thinking of others.

In public service, NYU Shanghai aspires to promote healthy development within the many communities it inhabits. It strives to be a responsible actor in the individual lives of students, teachers, and staff; in the local neighborhoods that surround its campus, the district of Pudong, the city of Shanghai, and the nation of China; in East China Normal University, in New York University; in the interdependent society of humankind, and in a truly global ecosystem.

The University Combines resources over and above the ordinary to deliver one of the greatest education systems in the world. Get detailed information about their campus, departments, and application time schedules by downloading the brochure. Apply to speak with your personal Program Advisor

Why Us

  • A Global Perspective on Academics

Graduates gain a global perspective on academics

Undergraduate Education

All undergraduate students pursue a course of study that will equip them with a broad knowledge base and tools to become creative thinkers and active learners throughout their lives.

English is the language of instruction on campus, though international students are required to study and achieve proficiency in Mandarin Chinese. The university regularly fosters opportunities for cross-cultural communication and cooperation in the classroom and through diverse extracurricular activities.

NYU Shanghai expects undergraduate students to spend the first two years on core courses and to select an academic specialization for deeper study and research in their third and fourth years. Students may pursue 19 different majors in the arts and sciences, business and finance, engineering, data, and computer science.

Over the course of their undergraduate studies, NYU Shanghai students are encouraged to spend up to two semesters studying in New York, Abu Dhabi, or at one of NYU’s eleven study away centers in cities around the world. This is an integral part of the University’s mission to foster truly global citizens.

Upon graduation, students will have earned two diplomas: An NYU degree (the same degree granted at our New York and Abu Dhabi campuses) and a Chinese-accredited NYU Shanghai diploma.

  • Graduate and Advanced Education

At the graduate level, NYU Shanghai offers master’s, Ph.D., and non-degree programs in a wide range of academic and professional disciplines. Through collaborations with peer NYU schools and departments, our offerings leverage the intellectual resources of the NYU Global Network and feature semesters of study in Shanghai, New York City, and around the world.

Hundreds of graduate students make NYU Shanghai their home every year. From master’s students taking the next steps in their careers in Data Analytics and TESOL to Ph.D. students conducting research at the frontiers of Chemistry and Neural Science, our graduate students make up a diverse and thriving community whose passions and energy enrich the university.

For more information about all of our 5 master’s programs, 8 Ph.D. programs, and various non-degree programs, visit NYU Shanghai Graduate and Advanced Education.
