Program areas at NYU

Education: founded in 1831, nyu is among the largest private not-for-profit research universities in the u.s., with 20 schools and institutes, approximately 5,000 full-time faculty members, and approximately 60,000 matriculating students. Nyu annually confers over 16,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees, and provides over $300 million per year in scholarship aid to undergraduates. Nyu has an unparalleled international presence with three degree-granting liberal arts research University campuses (in New York, abu dhabi, and shanghai) and 12 global academic sites (for study abroad) on six continents; sends more students to study abroad than any other u.s. college or University; and enrolls more international students than any other u.s. University.
Research and scholarship: nyu is a major research institution, with significant support from nih, nsf and other funders; it is a top 25 institution in the nsf's annual higher education research and development survey. The research and creative output of nyu's scholars have led to the receipt of nobel prizes; abel prizes; pulitzer prizes; guggenheims; the national medal of the arts; the national medal of science; the national medal of technology; nsf waterman awards; max planck awards; the kavli prize; membership for dozens of faculty in the national academies of sciences, engineering, and medicine; academy awards; tony awards; and grammy awards, among many other honors for the University's faculty. Nyu faculty findings are regularly published in top journals across a broad range of scholarly disciplines. Nyu has leading programs in economics, mathematics (and particularly applied mathematics), neuroscience, genomics, soft condensed matter physics, sociology, philosophy, the law, medicine and bio-medical sciences, the cinematic and performing arts, and business and finance, among many other scholarly fields.
Patient care and the healthcare mission: nyu's medical academic programs are a major element of the University's mission. The nyu school of medicine was established in 1841; from its earliest years, it has been at the forefront of advancing the medical profession and medical research, including participating in the process that led to the establishment of New York city's health department, establishing the first outpatient clinic, establishing the first laboratory devoted to teaching and research in bacteriology and pathology, creating the first department of forensic medicine, creating the first department of physical medicine and rehabilitation in the u.s., and establishing one of the first md-phd programs. Its faculty and graduates have included nobel laureates, the discoverer of the mosquito as the source of transmission of yellow fever, both creators of the polio vaccine, and the researchers who found the linkage between kaposi's sarcoma and immune deficiency in a distinct population of gay men (a key step in identifying aids), among other leaders in medicine. Through affiliation agreements, the doctors and students at nyu school of medicine play a crucial role in ensuring top quality care not only at nyu langone health, but also at the manhattan va hospital and bellevue hospital (arguably the foremost public hospital in the u.s.). The nyu college of dentistry, the largest dental school in the u.s. and most comprehensive oral health center in the world, cares for some 50,000 poor and low income New yorkers each year, operates a mobile dental care program which travels to underserved areas of New York state, and has established a profession-leading center to serve the oral health needs of those with disabilities. In addition, nyu has a college of global public health, and nyu's rory meyers college of nursing provides undergraduate and graduate education for over 1,400 nursing students.
