Tisch Drama is dedicated to giving you the artistic and intellectual know-how for a successful life in the performing arts.

What makes Tisch Drama unique? Our undergraduate program matches rigorous conservatory training with an empowering academic curriculum. We’re preparing our students to reinvent the fields they enter by building upon the creative and intellectual assets of NYU, the incomparable cultural resources of New York City, and a rich schedule of productions led by internationally recognized faculty and theatre artists.

At Tisch Drama, our studio system exposes students to different approaches to acting, musical performance, production, design, theatrical management, and directing. By exploring various creative techniques instead of a prescribed, regimented program, we're confident you’ll develop an individual way of working that suits you best. To enrich students' studio training, we place equal emphasis on an expansive theatre studies curriculum and general education courses in the humanities and sciences.

At Tisch Drama we train thinking artists who have the skills to ask questions, find answers, tell stories and engage — creatively, intellectually, and professionally.

A life in the theatre requires intellectual creativity, professional resourcefulness, and a talent for reinventing yourself as you create new opportunities.
