A New Model of Education
NYU Abu Dhabi develops future leaders who contribute their passion and skills to NYUAD and the UAE.
Internships, out-of-class interactions, and extracurricular activities were the most valuable part of my university experience. Interacting with students from different backgrounds shaped who I am today.
My double minor (literature, French) enables me to take full advantage of the liberal arts education we have at NYUAD. Since we have the opportunity to take classes across disciplines, completing minors across these divisions has enabled me to intentionally and actively shape my educational journey.
I believe that my double minor in legal studies and film truly embodies the essence of a liberal arts education. The disparity between these two fields of study allows me to explore the breadth of subjects that NYUAD offers and does not tie me down to just one. It is because of my varied education that I had an advantage in certain activities and opportunities.
