NYU Taps Near Protocol To Offer Metaverse Studies

In a February 6 press release, the New York University School of Professional Studies confirmed partnering with Near Foundation to introduce a new metaverse curriculum. The new course will enable students to learn the technology underlying the metaverse space.

“As a leading institution of applied, action-oriented learning and professional education, it is NYU SPS’ responsibility to prepare our students and faculty for success in every industry.”
