Program Description:
Founded in 1967,  NYAP is the premiere off-campus domestic program specializing in providing students with opportunities in the arts and creative  industries. Deeply connected to its location in a global cultural capital the NYAP semester advances students’ creative and critical skills, and helps them define and launch on a professional path through:
  • Internships - Students work approximately 20-30 hours a week for a company, institution, or individual creative practitioner structured by a learning goals agreement
  • Seminars that use NYC as an active resource - Faculty in each of the major program areas: Theatre & Dance,  Music & Media,  Visual Arts,  and Writing & Publishing conduct seminars with their advisees  that  introduce to professional creative practices and provide a perspective from which to examine what you are learning,  and how your experiences in New York City are reflected in the broader context of your education and in your creative work.  Most seminars frequently incorporate guest artists and site visits.
  • Professional Development Workshops - Through NYAP’s educational partnership with Creative Capital students participate in professional level workshops on strategic planning and financial literacy.  Creative Capital  is a national foundation that supports individual artists with grants and advising to help them develop and sustain their creative practices.  Workshops with NYAP students focus on skills designed to help students develop plans to achieve their professional and creative goals.
  • Program Individual advising
  • Community & events
  • And an independent urban living experience in New York City
