For over 45 years, the Tisch School of the Arts has drawn on the vast resources of New York City, New York University and the global arts community to create an extraordinary training ground for artists, scholars of the arts, and creative entrepreneurs. Tisch undergraduates study in a spirited, risk-taking environment that combines the professional training of a conservatory with the liberal arts education of a major research university. Graduate students work intensively with senior faculty members in small, highly focused departments as colleagues-in-training.
The Tisch School of the Arts enrolls 4,000 students in 17 programs and departments, offering BFA, MFA, MA, MPS and PhD degrees through four major institutes - the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television, the Skirball Center for New Media, the Institute of Performing Arts, and the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, the Department of Art & Public Policy, and a degree granting campus in Singapore. Additionally, the School offers spring and summer programs for high school students and courses and minors to non-majors from all over New York University. A new MFA degree program comes on board this fall. Tisch is part of NYU's Globally Networked University and students can take advantage of a vast array of international learning opportunities in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America, often in association with some of the world's leading cultural and educational institutions.
