NYU confused prospective art kid, need advice please!

<p>I'm having difficulty concerning which "college" within NYU to apply to.</p>

<p>I'm just your typical art student with a "solid" art portfolio. I'm interested in animation, industrial and communication design, and all sorts of stuff atm.</p>

<p>I just don't know yet. I haven't tried out any of them, besides a simple stop motion video I made because I was bored.</p>

<p>Should I apply to Steinhardt or Tisch? Which program would be more ideal for me?</p>

<p>Is animation even that big at Tisch? I don't think there's animation at all in Steinhardt.</p>

<p>Other than that - will I be able to explore a variety of interests in the art field?</p>

<p>What about non-art subjects, like foreign languages and computer science? Will I be able to cross over to other colleges and take classes?</p>

<p>Sorry, right now I'm just confused and troubled. If anyone out there knows of NYU's programs in depth, I'd gladly appreciate some advice!</p>

<p>I am sure more people can answer you
far as I know shallow blanket-y way
traditional art- Steinhardt
tech-y stuff- Tisch
don't know what just yet but I can change the world - Gallatin
crossover is not easy, I am not sure about it's even allowed between certain majors.
wait for more reply.
Visit and spy on what's on the wall is the best way to see. reading its website makes you more confused.</p>

<p>You'd definitely want to apply to Tisch (I'm a junior at Tisch, so I may be a little biased) over Steinhardt. I don't know their program at all but Tisch has a very robust animation program within Film & TV. You'd have to take regular film classes for the first two years at least (intro to animation is one of your options freshman year though) but after that, you can pretty much chose to take all animation classes or whatever. </p>

<p>Tisch is very flexible with their liberal arts requirement and its very easy to take on a liberal arts double major if you plan it from day one. Otherwise most film majors only take one liberal arts class every semester alongside their film classes.</p>

<p>You can also always minor in studio art, but you can't minor in film/animation. Hope this helps!</p>

<p>^Ooh yes! Please see my reply to you in the NYU thread, but bimachrist is right; you can always minor in studio art while you study animation in Tisch, which is what my friend is doing. Agreed on the liberal arts requirement, Tisch is much more flexible than Steinhardt.</p>

<p>And you can still fit in an animation craft course or two during your first two years in Tisch along side regular film courses, so no worries about that.</p>
