Founded in 1831, New York University is now one of the largest private universities in the United States. Of the more than 3,000 colleges and universities in the U.S., NYU is one of only 60 member institutions of the distinguished Association of American Universities. University alumni include 31 Nobel Prize winners, 16 Pulitzer Prize winners, and 19 Academy Award winners. NYU also has MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowship holders, as well as National Academy of Sciences members, among its past and present graduates and faculty.
The University Awards More than 25 Degrees
Students come to NYU from all 50 states and from the world over. Over 40,000 students attend 14 schools and colleges at six major centers in Manhattan. The faculty, which originally had 14 professors and lecturers (among them artist and inventor Samuel F. B. Morse), now has more than 3,100 faculty members. But don't be put off by NYU's size. Sure, some introductory classes are sizeable, but many classes are small. And with more than 2,500 courses offered, the University awards more than 25 different degrees.
