The New School for Drama


At The New School for Drama, the instinct to create is revered. The New School for Drama is agile, globally engaged, multi-­disciplinary, and technologically savvy, with core belief in, and practice of, collaborative learning. We embrace civic awareness across theatrical and performance disciplines -­- including emerging media forms -- pursuing convergences and intersections.

At the MFA level, we are the generative and experimental home to a select group of forward-­‐ thinking young artists and established professionals who will contribute to and define the future of performing arts.

With multiple pathways through the offered curriculum, the BFA in Dramatic Arts provides students with both a high level of artistic training, project­‐based learning and, as importantly, knowledge and reasoning skills which can be applied to a constellation of 21st century career challenges and opportunities.
