NYU Steinhardt's Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions was established in 1925. In 1968, the Department merged with the New York College of Music. Since that time, Steinhardt Music and Performing Arts Professions has functioned as NYU's "school" of music and developed into a major research and practice center in music technology, music business, music composition, film scoring, music performance practices, performing arts therapies, and the performing arts-in-education (music, dance, and drama). Today, 1,600 students majoring in these renowned music and performing arts programs are guided by 400 faculty. Our degree programsbaccalaureate through doctorateare marked by an integration of performance, research, technology, and practice. Further, the programs are integrated with one another in ways that bring performance majors and composers together with choreographers, directors, actors, dancers, educators, librettists, and filmmakers in collaborative projects often reviewed by the New York media. Faculty sit on leading journal editorial boards, perform in the most prestigious concert venues in the world, and publish some of the most significant performing arts research on the scene today. Housed in new and growing facilities including advanced studios in music technology and rehearsal, practice, and concert spaces for our orchestra and performance programs, our Department and the Steinhardt School offer an unparalleled environment for artistic, professional, and scholarly challenge and growth.
