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.
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.
Centered on the making and understanding of images, this program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum while demanding a broad grounding in the liberal arts. Our department embraces multiple perspectives, with majors working in virtually all modes of analog and digital photo-based image making and multimedia. As a Photography & Imaging major, you’ll work closely with faculty advisors to design a rigorous program of study that suits your passions and challenges you to expand your conceptual and technical boundaries. Alumni go on to publish in national newspapers and magazines, work in museums and community art, and become art critics, documentary photographers, photojournalists, filmmakers, and graphic designers
