- When New York University was founded in 1831, most higher education in the United States focused on such classical studies as Latin and Greek. NYU was determined to concentrate on more practical studies, and today over 30,000 students from all over the world get degrees in medicine, dentistry, business, law, education, social work and many other areas. This is much more than just an urban commuter college, and cultural events and lectures are readily available and usually open to the public.
