Barnard in New York City

Your City

World-class museums. Best-kept-secret pizzerias. Broadway’s lights. Enviable internships. When you study at Barnard, everything New York City has to offer is at your fingertips.


NYC: A Class Act

Barnard professors make New York City your classroom. You might conduct fieldwork along the Hudson River, go behind the scenes at the Metropolitan Museum, or work with archival materials at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

I love being able to explore all corners of the City, thanks to the subway, while also having access to the beautiful nature of Morningside Heights.

If there’s anything Barnard and New York City have taught me, it’s how to roll with the punches.

Having the freedom to go anywhere, combined with the wide range of museums, food carts, parks, and experiences that exist in NYC, gives me the opportunity to expand my education beyond Barnard’s halls.
