About the Location

The Elon in New York City fall program is a full semester opportunity for students to intern and take classes in the Big Apple.


The program is open to ALL majors.

This program allows for students to take 12 hours of credit through our partnership with Marymount Manhattan College (MMC). The school offers a variety of course selections and offers an advisor to help students get the most from the course offerings. Students must meet with the Elon registrar to know how their courses will transfer back to Elon. View additional information about MMC.

Additional credits are available through an internship (2 credit hours) and a global professional development course (2 credit hours). Study USA offers all students assistance in obtaining internships that will provide a unique and engaging experience.

Grades count toward an Elon GPA. 

Study USA courses may NOT be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis.

Program Activities

Programming will be coordinated by Elon staff and alumni. Tours, museums, special sites, theater district, and networking events are just some of the events included on the itinerary.
