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.

We invite students, faculty, staff, and prospective students to join the Department of Performance Studies for our annual Day of Community event! Begin the day with yoga at the Department of Cinema Studies. Then, come pamper and beautify yourself at our volunteer-run Beauty Salon and Photo Booth. After getting your beauty on, join us for a screening of Glenn Holsten's "Hollywood Beauty Salon," followed by a brief decompression and informal discussion.
The Department of Performance Studies invites parents to join us for Parents Day 2017.
We invite prospective students to attend the open house to learn more about our graduate degree programs. The session will provide an overview of our master’s and doctoral programs, an introduction to our faculty and their research, an opportunity to meet with current students and admissions staff.
The Department of Performance Studies invites all NYU undergrad students to take a slice out of life and join us for a Pizza Party! Engage in insightful discussions, such as whether pineapple belongs on pizza, or how many slices is too many to eat in one sitting. This may sound cheesy, but take a break from your crusty homework and join us! Guaranteed to be a saucy time.
This talk is based on the book project Intimate Relations, where Amelia Jones traces the interrelated histories of the terms “queer” and “performative” since 1950 in anglophone discourse. This genealogy suggests that the terms have deeply informed not only our thinking about queer, about performance and the performative, and about queer performance, but as well our understanding of how art works and comes to have cultural value (or not) over the past 70 years.
