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.
Come explore a new career path, get a fresh perspective, or rediscover a passion. You can enroll in Tisch classes and special programs regardless of whether or not you currently attend a university. We offer rigorous, inspiring courses year-round for current college students and adult learners in New York City and abroad.
The mission of the Open Arts curriculum is to provide a learning environment open to all NYU students offering foundational knowledge and practice in performing, cinematic, and/or emerging media arts and studies. In Open Arts, every student has the opportunity to integrate and apply arts practice and process to their own field of study, and to engage in creative interaction with a wide range of students across the university network, both local and global.
Open Arts is a vital and innovative space for interdisciplinary study, serving all the departments at the Tisch School of the Arts and all the schools at the University.
