About NYU Steinhardt
Our mission, maintained since our founding in 1890, is to advance knowledge, creativity, and innovation at the crossroads of culture, education, and human development. We are dedicated to educating for social change, and we offer both undergraduate and graduate programs in applied psychology, education, the arts, health, and media.
We exemplify NYU’s commitment to public service, providing our students with a strong, supportive community of scholars and a warm, nurturing environment that encourages the discovery and implementation of new ideas. Faculty members are leaders in their professional fields and collaborate across disciplines.
We encourage learning inside and outside of the classroom by facilitating internships and partnerships with schools, organizations, and companies across the country.
