Columbia's School of the Arts offers courses that lead to the BA (Bachelor of Arts) degree in Creative Writing, Film and Media Studies, and Visual Arts awarded by Columbia College and the School of General Studies.

The Columbia University School of the Arts offers MFA degrees in Film, Theatre, Visual Arts and Writing, an MA degree in Film Studies, a joint JD/MFA degree in Theatre Management & Producing, and an interdepartmental program in Sound Arts. The School of the Arts is an innovative graduate professional school with a tradition of risk-taking, grounded in a deeply intellectual Ivy League university and energized by our location in New York City--one of the great cultural capitals of the world. The study and practice of art-making at the School is an immersive, constantly evolving process. Aspiring, emerging or established, our filmmakers, writers, theatre practitioners and visual artists grow individually through intensive engagement with their craft and lively, often profound exchanges of ideas and work.
