For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds.
Learn on the New York University (NYU) campus and eat in the same dining halls as its undergrads.
DMA classrooms border the culturally and historically significant Washington Square Park, where much of NYU’s rich history in the arts and letters occurred. Artists of the Hudson River School (the United States’ first prominent school of painters) created major works of art right in Washington Square. And some of America’s greatest writers – including Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Herman Melville and Walt Whitman – were active in the NYU art scene centered at the park. As a nod to this rich cultural heritage, NYU has several world-famous museums, libraries and art galleries for students to explore.
