The School of the Arts offers MFA degrees in Film, Theatre Arts, Writing, and Visual Arts, and an MA in Film Studies. Applicants in Music or Art History should consult the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and applicants in Arts Administration should consult Teachers College.
The School of the Arts serves Columbia University undergraduates through three programs: Film Studies, Visual Arts, and Creative Writing. These programs provide students, including majors, concentrates, and non-majors, with experience as practicing artists and a solid base in history, theory, and criticism within the context of a liberal arts education. Barnard College's Drama & Theatre Arts Program also serves Columbia undergraduates.
