Performance Studies Info Session

We can't wait to meet you! 

At the moment, the Department of Performance Studies has temporarily suspended our in-person prospective student visits as part of New York University's precautionary measures for preventing the spread of the coronavirus. However, there are so many ways you can connect with us and learn about life at PS!

Join us  for a B.A. Program Information Session

Join our webinar to learn about our undergraduate program, our curriculum, PS faculty, student programs, events and the application process. We're hoping this virtual format helps make our programming more accessible to anyone around the country or across the globe who is interested in learning more about Performance Studies at Tisch! This open house session will last about one hour with a program and curriculum overview by Professor Andre Lepecki, Department Chair, Professor Malik Gaines, Director of Undergraduate Studies, and Laura Fortes, Associate Director of Programs and Undergraduate Advisor. The session will be followed by a Q/A.

Information Session Schedule:

Sessions to come for Fall 2021! 


NYU Admissions also offers a virtual info session and campus tour, which will give you the bigger picture of the University and all it offers.

Sit in on a class and meet with an advisor

Prospective Undergraduate Student: Students who are interested in getting to know more about the curriculum of the B.A. in Performance Studies are invited to sit in on our Intro to Performance Studies class that meets on Tuesdays from 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM EST for Fall 2020. Sign up for the opportunity to "zoom in" to the weekly lecture and listen in on the class discussion. You won't want to miss a chance to sit in on Professor Vazquez's classroom. 

You will also have the chance to set up a meeting with Laura Fortes, Associate Director of Programs and Undergraduate Advisor, to have your questions answered about the program and the admission process. You can meet with Laura "after class" or at another time that works best for you!

Prospective Graduate Student: Students who are interested in getting to know more about the curriculum of the M.A. in Performance Studies are invited to sit in on a few different seminar classes for Fall 2020. Set up a meeting with Noel Rodriguez, Administrative & Academic Director and Graduate Advisor, to learn more about the graduate program and admissions process and he will set up the opportunity to sit in on a class that relates to your research interests and works with your schedule. 

We can "visit" you! 

PS would be happy to visit your classroom or office virtually! Let us know if you are a high school guidance courselor or teacher that works with a group of students that would love to know more about PS. We could set up an info session with a PS staff member and a guest lecture lead by our Director of Undergraduate Studies just for your school.
