THE NEW SCHOOL FOR DRAMA - The creative home for the future of performing arts

Agile. Engaged. Innovative. Multidisciplinary. The New School for Drama is home to a dynamic group of young directors, writers, actors, creative technologists, and award-winning faculty. With a core belief in rigorous creativity and collaborative learning, our programs embrace civic awareness across performance disciplines to create work imbued with professionalism, imagination, and social context.

At the MFA level, we are a generative center of practice and production for a select ensemble of forward-thinking emerging professionals and dedicated faculty who are helping to define the future of performing arts. 

With multiple pathways through the offered curriculum, the BFA provides students with a high level of artistic training, project-based learning, consistent performance opportunities and, as important, knowledge and reasoning skills that can be applied to a variety of 21st-century career challenges and choices.

Offering a shared graduate and undergraduate faculty and learning environment in the historic Westbeth Artists complex in Greenwich Village, access to top design, music, liberal arts, and social science divisions across the university, and connections to excellent downtown theater companies, The New School for Drama offers unparalleled opportunities for courageous and engaged theater artists and performers.
