Learning Express - New York City: Arts & Activism - now held online   

Announcement: April 14, 2020:
In order to reflect CUNY's decision to hold distance-learning courses through the summer, Learning Across America will be continuing in an online format through June 30, 2020. Any classes posted through June 30, 2020 will not be held in person or on location. Online courses will be held for the same number of credits as our in-person option. Please email us with questions at





New York City’s vibrant arts and culture scene owes much to the contributions of individuals from around the globe who have fallen in love with the city and dedicated their talents to making it a creative beacon to all the world. But more than creating beauty, many of those artistic contributions are dedicated to advancing the cause of social justice across the city, nation and world. The course will explore how the arts and activism interact, with classroom session enriched by visits to some of the influential destinations that reflect that interaction.




Updated Course Information WS20:

Learning Across America has moved all courses through June 30, 2020 to a live online format due to COVID-19. Using this format, students can still attend class from their laptop, tablet, or smartphone at the convenience of their own home. We understand the disappointment of not being able to visit the city of your study, but our Learning Across America teachers have worked very hard to make the curriculum engaging and rich in this new format, and students have been responding very positively!

Your credit hours will remain unaffected. Once you have successfully completed the course and submitted your final project, you will receive a CERTIFICATE via email stating you have earned CREDIT for 36 hours or 3.6 CEUs (Continuing Education Units).



Course Price: $275

Since we are moving to an online format, your full tuition is now $275. You will receive an automatic partial refund within 1 week of your first class date to the card you used at the time of registration. You do not need to contact us to receive the partial refund. Once we process your refund, you will receive an email confirmation. Please note that it may take 2-4 business days for the money to appear back in your account. We are unable to refund to a different card than the one you used to at the time of registration.

NYC: Arts and Activism

Your course will consist of a pre-assignment, independent coursework and final assignment as well as live online class sessions with your teacher/other au pairs at the following times:

NYC: Arts and Activism (Times below listed in Eastern Time. Click here for more details.)
Friday, April 24: 10am-1pm
Saturday, April 25: 10am-1pm
Sunday, April 26: 10am-1pm

Please note that your pre-assignment will be emailed to you one week before your first online class session. You will receive details on how to log-in to your online class sessions one day before the start of the course.

Students are required to be present during all live online class sessions. However, your independent coursework can be completed at your leisure before the deadline one week after your online class ends. We wanted to create flexibility in completion as we know many au pairs now have increased work hours due to COVID-19.
