NYIT has forged relationships with academic institutions in China since the 1990s, as part of the first wave of American universities with operations there. Today, we offer undergraduate and graduate programs with several prestigious partner universities and regularly host conferences addressing global trends and challenges.
We and our partner, Communication University of China (CUC), currently offer five undergraduate and three graduate degree programs. Students can earn two degrees simultaneously from both NYIT and the Faculty of International Media of CUC (ICUC). In Beijing, they are taught by NYIT and CUC faculty members, and all have the option of completing their studies in New York, where they have opportunities for U.S. internships and optional practical training.
In 2012, Communication University of China, China’s most respected university in communications and media, approached us about developing a relationship to benefit students and faculty. From this start, NYIT and CUC became the two founding members of China’s first media-centered China-foreign cooperatively run institution, with official approval granted by China’s Ministry of Education. This institution is known formally as the Faculty of International Media of CUC, or ICUC.
If you attend another NYIT campus, you can seamlessly study in Beijing for a semester or longer, depending on your major. All NYIT-Beijing courses are taught in English and follow NYIT’s curriculum, which is the same worldwide, with various majors offered at each location. Learn more about studying abroad.… or New York
