Work Towards a Minor by Studying Abroad

Wednesday, Feb 7, 2018

Studying abroad or away can be its own reward, but if you’re an NYU undergraduate student traveling beyond New York City with Tisch Special Programs, you can earn more than credits towards your degree. By studying in London or Los Angeles this summer, you can work towards a minor in Producing or the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Technology (BEMT). Are you planning on studying abroad in the spring? Spend a semester in Havana and complete one of the electives for the Minor in Documentary!

Producing in London may be the best example of getting the most out of your study abroad experience. In just three weeks you can fulfill both core requirements of the Minor in Producing: Producing Essentials and Media Moguls of the 20th Century.  

When you study in Los Angeles, the core course Producing for Film and Television may be used towards the Tisch Minor in Producing electives as well as the Tisch portion of the BEMT minor. A second component of the Producing for Film and Television in Los Angeles program is a 10-week media internship, which may be applied to the Minor in Producing or Minor in Documentary
