COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Over the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has compelled The New School to reimagine our educational experience and led us to deliver academic instruction online. Now that vaccines have been approved and distribution has begun, we have reopened our New York City campus in fall 2021 and returned to predominantly in-person teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

From The School of Drama - The New School

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.
