Founded in 1934, the school offers undergraduate, graduate and graduate certificate programs in 18 academic fields.[2] For the 2014-2015 academic year, there were a total of 4,205 enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, many of which are international students.

History[edit]

NYU and in particular its School of Professional Studies (NYU-SPS) has fostered a rich tradition of serving the City and the world, by providing educational experiences that prepare students who are just beginning on their career path, as well as those who are seasoned veterans. Through undergraduate, graduate, and noncredit offerings that span a plethora of industry-related disciplines, the School has shaped the very landscape of professionally oriented education. In the classroom, in the field, and online, its programs have inspired the next generation of leaders, to innovate, communicate, and succeed in a constantly changing world that offers limitless opportunity.

1930's[edit]

The school launches as the Division Of General Education (DGE). With nearly 25% of the U.S workforce unemployed, DGE offers training programs for social workers and establishes the Reading Clinic to improve the literacy skills of adult job seekers. Career-focused programs and centres are introduced including the first real estate appraisal course, the centre for Graphic Design, and the radio workshop.

1940's[edit]

DGE opens a war training centre in response to the nation's urgent need for skilled technical workers. To elucidate wartime changes in the TAX code, DGE holds the first NYU institute on Federal Taxation, which has since become an annual event. With the end of World War II, the Gl Bill enables returning veterans to attend college and enrolment soars.

The NYU School of Professional Studies offers 17 graduate degree programs and 12 graduate certificates that provide grounding in high-growth disciplines encompassing diverse career paths. Through the Paul McGhee Division, students who cannot attend school full time, transfer students, as well as older students who wish to return to school, can complete their undergraduate degree in a supportive learning environment.

NYU-SPS classes are held at four convenient locations listed below. The location at 7 East 12th Street also houses the Office of Admissions, as well as the Office of Noncredit Student Services in addition to the School's administrative offices.

With more than 2,300 on-site and online courses, certificates, and intensives, NYU-SPS is also one of the world's leading providers of noncredit continuing education.
