New York University

New York University is also known as NYU and is found in New York City, New York, USA. It offers doctorates in American Studies, Arts, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Fine Arts, Politics and other fields of study.

The school was formed in 1831, under the eye of Albert Gallatin, who had served under James Madison and Thomas Jefferson as their Secretary of the Treasury.
