- NEW YORK, NY
Our School of Drama combines rigor with creative experimentation. We focus on authenticity of expression and confront today's most pressing societal issues through the making of theater, film, and emerging media.
Our faculty is made up of New York's contemporary legends-award-winning actors, playwrights, and directors who bring a currency of professional experience, artistic training, and project-based learning into the classroom.
Our four-year BFA program in Dramatic Arts prepares students to be artists in today's changing world, creative thinkers, and engaged citizens. Our MFA program throws students into an intensive, highly collaborative, and ensemble-driven training, with a focus on the creation of new works and relevant reinterpretation of existing plays.
Will You Get In?
The BFA program in Dramatic Arts at the School of Drama prepares actors, directors, writers, and creative technology artists to be 21st-century creators and thinkers. The program is designed to train both students pursuing a single discipline and those who seek to become multi-hyphenate artists: actor-writer, director-writer, actor-creative technologist, and all variations.
The School of Drama at The New School Reviews
If you are focused on one particular aspect of theatre (for example, you are an actor who does not have an interest in self-producing, playwriting, directing etc.) this may not be the program for you, as it is more focused on multidisciplinary artists with an interest in self-producing.
