Studying the Arts at Baruch
Located in the world’s arts capital, Baruch College attracts an array of talent to its campus. Through the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, the College offers degree programs in fine and performing arts, journalism and creative writing, and comparative literature. The Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship houses Maker Hub, Baruch’s resident makerspace for technology, design, and entrepreneurship. Partnerships with New York City institutions such as the Rubin Museum of Art and other external arts programs provide enhanced coursework for our students.
