Spend a semester immersed in the arts while earning college credit that transfers

Sarah Lawrence College, the site of legendary programs in the arts, offers semester-long programs to students who wish to study writing, dance, theatre, or a combined theatre and dance program in a dynamic and immersive environment minutes away from New York City. Take in all that the College, and New York City, have to offer.

Here’s how it works: two thirds of your program will be in classes that focus on your interests in writing, dance, or theatre. You will take an additional course from Sarah Lawrence's rich offerings in the humanities, social sciences, and science. In writing, take workshops with Sarah Lawrence's internationally renowned faculty in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, and participate in the lively schedule of readings and lectures on campus, while traveling to the city for theatre, readings, poetry slams, and other events. In dance, work with our legendary performers and teachers in a wide variety of practices and in theatre, study acting, directing, playwriting, or costume and set design, among other subjects. Or construct a combined dance and theatre program, and be part of Sarah Lawrence campus productions while attending the latest works of theatre and dance in New York City.

Semester@SLC offers the chance for immersive study of writing and the performing arts on a beautiful bucolic campus where personal attention to your artistic development is the watchword. At the same time, it offers the excitement of proximity to the unfolding world of the arts in New York City. For more information on the specific programs, please explore this site.
