Dean's Message

For over 45 years, the Tisch School of the Arts has drawn on the vast resources of New York City and New York University to create an extraordinary training ground for artists, scholars of the arts, and creative entrepreneurs. With the arrival of New York University’s global network, in addition to the Tisch School’s graduate campus in Singapore, there are over a dozen global sites available to our students on six continents.

Tisch undergraduates study in a spirited, risk-taking environment that combines the professional training of a conservatory with the liberal arts education of a major research university.  Graduate students work intensively with senior faculty members in small, highly focused departments as colleagues-in-training.

One of the world's leading centers of undergraduate and graduate study in the arts, the Tisch School of the Arts comprises 17 departments and programs offering the BA, BFA, MFA, MA, MPS, and PhD degrees.  The School offers state-of-the-art facilities, a collaboratively oriented community of award-winning faculty members, internship opportunities with established professionals, and the incomparable artistic and cultural resources of New York City and Singapore. 

Whether you study at the Institute of Performing Arts, the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television, the Skirball Center for New Media, or the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, you will be encouraged to give full expression to your talents as you develop the skills necessary for a successful professional career. 

I invite you to read A Stand for Tisch School of the Arts (below). In three short acts, you will understand our commitment to students, faculty and staff from New York to Singapore, from Abu Dhabi to Shanghai and throughout the global network. I also encourage you to take time to explore our Websites, come to campus for a tour, or call our Office of Student Affairs (212-998-1900) for further information.

I wish you the very best.
