About the Organizer:

The Department of Design for Stage and Film at NYU/Tisch School of the Arts is a diverse community of theater and film artists. Our 3 year MFA (Graduate) program educates future generations of theater and film designers who, like our faculty and alumni before them, will have a profound impact on the arts through their design work.

As theater and film artists, we are storytellers, and we teach our students to tell stories through meticulous research, the disciplined practice of craft, deep dramaturgical exploration of text, unimpeded creativity, and profound respect for the cultures and identities of the stories and characters we explore.
