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.
Partly inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, this play uses contemporary language and rhythms, elevating the lives of street youth to a mythical level in telling their lives, lies, dreams and adventures. The characters in the play, based on real people interviewed by the writer, are presented as characters from Greek mythology. They speak frankly and lyrically about their innermost desires—the primary one of which is to be seen. Fast-moving and theatrical, Polaroid Stories illuminates the lives of those we often avoid encountering as we traverse our cities.
