No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Visiting students and non-majors are invited to take classes during January Term, Spring at Tisch, and Summer. Earn credits towards your major or minor, build your résumé with an internship, or take classes to change careers. Come be inspired by New York City and our international sites.
The Office of Special Programs at Tisch School of the Arts provides access to the arts. Whether you’re an NYU or visiting college student, high school student or working professional, we provide you with the introductory exposure to the performing or cinematic arts and the advanced-level training to grow your craft.
The Institute of Performing Arts offers intense professional training to individuals in the departments of Art & Public Policy, Graduate Acting, Dance, Design for Stage & Film, Graduate Musical Theatre Writing, Drama, Open Arts, and Theatrical Production. Additionally, in association with the Graduate School of Arts & Science, the Tisch School’s Department of Performance Studies offers an innovative approach to the study of the history, theory, and practice of human performance.
The Institute also houses five dance studios; six theatres; scene, costume, prop, and welding shops; three design studios; a CAD facility, and the editorial staffs of two performance arts journals.
