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.
The mission of the Open Arts curriculum is to provide a learning environment open to all NYU students offering foundational knowledge and practice in performing, cinematic, and/or emerging media arts and studies. In Open Arts, every student has the opportunity to integrate and apply arts practice and process to their own field of study, and to engage in creative interaction with a wide range of students across the university network, both local and global.
Open Arts is a vital and innovative space for interdisciplinary study, serving all the departments at the Tisch School of the Arts and all the schools at the University.
