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.

Times Square is a new musical about two girls, Nicky and Pammy, who find courage, love, and rock and roll while on the run in the sleazy streets of the old Times Square. They meet, start a band, The Sleaze Sisters (Riot Grrrls before the concept existed), and eventually kiss, freak out, and kiss again. At a time when many non-conforming young people face tough challenges, Tisch Drama and The Civilians are excited to tell the story of two girls who save themselves through their own efforts—their songs, their bond, and their total refusal to back down.
