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.
PRAXIS, INC: Innovate, Network, Collaborate is the department's annual community event in which we invite current students, faculty and alumni to come together and share their skills in the field of Performance Studies, engage in important conversations, and stay connected with colleagues and peers.
Praxis includes a wide range of programming like visual artwork, practicum workshops, discussion panels and informational sessions. Some programs which students and alums have led in the past include: self scripted choreography, a film installation inspired by Amusement parks, and a talk on publishing without an agent.
Each year we conclude Praxis with an alumni performance. The department's Alumni Fund directly supports this alumni performance in the form of an honorarium.
In addition to this year's workshops, B.A. Candidate Melissa McDonald displayed her art installation The Living Room in the Performance Studies Lounge.
