Study Abroad

NYU Accra

Accra, Ghana

Students may take courses at the NYU Accra Center, but htey may also take courses at two local universities: University of Ghana at Legon, Ghana's premier public university, and Ashesi University, a leading private college just outside of Accra. 

There is a special track for students interested in the arts at NYU Accra.  "Studio Arts in Accra" is only offered in the fall semester, but offers students an opportunity to work directly with local artists and take a variety of studio art courses. 

We expect students to take an African language course as one of their courses.
