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.
Join us for our first ReMu Talks of the spring semester featuring Ledisi, a 12-time Grammy-nominated R&B icon – the night before the 60th GRAMMY Awards come back to NYC after spending 15 years on the West Coast. This year Ledisi is being nominated at the GRAMMYs for Best R&B Album for "Let Love Rule," Best R&B Performance for "High," and Best Traditional R&B Performance for "All The Way."
In conversation with Clive Davis Institute's very own Jason King, Ledisi will talk about her musical journey, creative influences, and what's been going on since her first visit back in 2003 when the program had just launched.
