CITYterm Experience
At CITYterm, each student is enrolled in the Urban Core, our interdisciplinary core curriculum.  In addition, students can take up to two additional courses from a wide range of offerings.  

Due to the intensity of the Urban Core curriculum, students may not take more than five classes total; this includes online classes and independent studies conducted through on or off-site tutoring. 

Urban Core

Everyone enrolls in the Urban Core, our signature interdisciplinary curriculum. The Urban Core is taught through individual and collaborative, experiential projects. Students engage in an intense, six-day a week curriculum (3 days a week in New York City and 3 days a week in small, seminar-style classes).
