Would you like to sit in on a class or be in touch with a current student? Let us know! Contact Laura Fortes (lf65@nyu.edu). We'll be glad to connect with you!

Our B.A. program is a very exciting, innovative, and interdisciplinary liberal arts major that trains students to think and write critically and creatively about “performance” – across media, genre, or platform. We study performance in the arts as well as culture more broadly – “on the page, stage, and street” – and we train students to understand, write about, and analyze it. 

Our students are excited about analyzing and understanding performance in an interdisciplinary context that includes anthropology, sound studies, ethnic and gender studies, religious studies, philosophy, etc. You can learn more about some of our amazing undergraduate students (your future classmates!) here.

Congratulations again on your acceptance to Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts!
