The vast cultural resources of New York City are well-known and the benefits derived from daily access to these resources are self-evident. Less familiar is the milieu of the large urban setting of the professional artist—that mix of people, places, and events which constitute the artists’ environment, world, and immediate audience. The New York Arts Program Loft and office are centrally located in the Garment District of Manhattan.

The Program

The New York Arts Program provides advanced experience and knowledge in highly focused areas within the arts and creative industries. Students broaden their knowledge of all the arts as practiced in New York through internships, seminars and faculty mentorship while also carving their own path as practicing artists and professionals.

A qualified student will spend a semester or term which will be 15 weeks in the Fall or Spring (16 credits/semester) living in New York as an intern to a working artist or with an organization in the arts. At the same time, students participate in specially designed seminars led by professional artists in NYC.


The program is open to students from all academic majors.

Application Process

  1. Apply to study away with the Allegheny International Education Office. Applications will be reviewed immediately following the appropriate semester deadline.
  2. Once accepted, the Allegheny International Education Office will provide instructions about applying to the New York Arts Program.

Student Housing

Student housing is provided by New York Arts Program and varies by semester. The Program works with FOUND Study to provide great housing options in the heart of the city. Depending on the semester, students will live in either Brooklyn Heights or Chelsea. Both neighborhoods are conveniently located to maneuver all five boroughs of NYC and each have their respective charms. Brooklyn Heights is one of the oldest neighborhoods in NYC, located right along the East River with beautiful views of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. Chelsea is the heart of the gallery scene in Manhattan with historic brownstones and charming restaurants and cafés.


Students are charged Allegheny tuition, fees (including $300 off-campus fee), and the NV 1 room rate.  Additional costs include transportation to New York City, local transportation to and from your internship sites, all meals, personal expenses, and health insurance.
