Arts & Media

The arts are not just an area of study—they are a way of life. At NYU, you immediately find yourself in the heart of the world's arts and media capitals. This is especially reflected in New York City, the global capital of virtually every arts- and media-related field. You will also find yourself minutes away from artistic and musical institutions like the theaters of Broadway, Lincoln Center, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, providing you with an exciting, immersive, and unique academic experience. Students studying in Abu Dhabi, Shanghai, or abroad at a global site, engage with the local creative communities and benefit from the added enrichment of viewing the arts and media through a multicultural lens.

Listed below are the academic programs in the arts and media that are available to NYU students. (Please note that many programs listed under “Humanities” study areas of artistic production and may also be of interest.)
