From The New School College of Performing Arts

At the College of Performing Arts, our renowned schools of drama, jazz, and classical music come together to form a progressive creative center at the heart of The New School. Here performing arts students work across disciplines to become a force of new artistry.

Established in the fall of 2015, The New School’s College of Performing Arts brings together Mannes School of Music, the iconic 100-year-old conservatory; the legendary School of Jazz and Contemporary Music; and the innovative and groundbreaking School of Drama.

The College of Performing Arts creates opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration, innovative education, and world-class performances. Our Arts Management and Entrepreneurship MA, the Performer-Composer MM, and the new MFA in Contemporary Theatre and Performance draw upon the cross-disciplinary culture of the school.
