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.

What do we want from the media revolution? Not just where is it bringing us--where do we want to go? How can we revitalize older forms of media to be helpful to society and to us personally?
In an era of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” Bending The Frame, based upon a book of the same name by Fred Ritchin, presents a variety of image-based strategies from documentary photography and visual journalism that, when combined with contemporary art practices, “bend the frame” with the intention of creating greater social impact and a wider discussion that may then lead to social change.
The artists include Debi Cornwall, on torture at Guantánamo; the French-based collective #Dysturb, on contemporary events; Tim Hetherington's video "Diary" on the idiosyncratic life of the war correspondent; Dutch photographer Jan Hoek on “New Ways of Photographing the New Masai”; Chris Jordan on the pollution of the Pacific; Jennifer Karady on US veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan; Gideon Mendel on worldwide flooding and climate change; Celia A. Shapiro on the last meals of U.S. prisoners before their execution; Taryn Simon and Aaron Swartz on the vagaries of Internet imagery; Chris Johnson, Hank Willis Thomas, Bayeté Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair on building a dialogue among African-American men with Question Bridge; and Sumeja Tulic's “Travel Guide for Mama” on Muslim women in New York City.

The Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts is a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within New York University, the program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts.
