The application for fall 2024 is open.
The deadline is February 1, 2024.
About the Program
The Master of Arts (MA) in Producing entails both artistry and business acumen. A successful producer is aware of two things: how to identify a good story and how to make it. The skilled, thinking artist is able to recognize and produce stories for the world market, strategically approach global challenges, has a firm knowledge of production budgets, and understands the financial aspects of marketing and distribution. A background in producing for film and television production is not required for acceptance into this program.
Tisch School of the Arts is looking for Master's degree applicants from a diverse range of educational and professional backgrounds who want to explore and create stories in a visual medium. Acceptance into the program is competitive; the program is delivered online and was designed with sensitivity to working professionals who show exceptional promise and are interested in collaboration and storytelling.
Admission for degree candidates is for the fall semester only. All students entering the program must hold a bachelor’s degree in any background or subject matter. No entrance examination is required (however, international students must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) English exam. IELTS and Duolingo results are accepted as well).
MA in Producing Application Requirements
All applicants must meet the English language requirements. If English is not your native language, you should plan to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The test should be taken as early as possible to ensure that results are received in time to meet admissions deadlines. Only TOEFL scores that are less than two years old are acceptable. Late receipt of scores will cause delays in the admissions process and departmental evaluation. NYU's TOEFL code is 9633.
Alternatively, you can meet this requirement by submitting the results of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination, Duolingo or Pearsons Test of English (PTE).
Financial Aid Form
After submitting the graduate application, students can then complete the financial aid form by logging back into their application and checking the status portal. Please note, the financial aid form is not used when determining admissions decisions. Rather, we use these forms for accepted students in determining departmental scholarship allocations. Please see the financial aid page for more information on how we try to support our students, especially underrepresented students to come up with a feasible financial plan to enroll in MA Producing. Once admissions decisions are sent out, we will reach out to all accepted students to urge them to complete this financial aid form if they would like to be considered for departmental scholarship aid.
US students who are eligible for US federal student aid should complete the FAFSA no later than February 1.
