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.

How did Hollywood cinema reflect, deflect, influence, inspire, and steal from modernism’s new aesthetics? Directed by William Seiter with art direction by Van Nest Polglase and Perry Ferguson, Chance at Heaven (RKO, 1933) depicts a rural garage mechanic with ambitions (Joel McCrea) who is engaged to a small-town girl (Ginger Rogers) whose house is both up-to-date and country, a potential haven for their life together. Then he runs off with a rich, glamorous society girl (Marian Nixon), to a New York City steeped in urban, chic, modern taste. With commentary by Drake Stutesman, Adjunct Professor of Cinema Studies (TSOA) and Costume Studies (Steinhardt), NYU.
Co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Cinema Studies and Grey Art Gallery.
Offered in conjunction with the exhibition Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson, on view at the Grey Art Gallery, New York University, 100 Washington Square East, September 7-December 9, 2017.
