The Arts at Baruch

Located in the world's arts capital, our College attracts an array of talent to its campus and organizes off-site arts programs and visits. Through the Weissman School, the College offers over 50 areas of study within the liberal arts; the Continuing and Professional Studies program hosts a variety of courses on the arts, culture and humanities each semester; and partnerships with New York City museums and other external arts programs provide enriched coursework for our students.

The Baruch Performing Arts Center presents theater, concerts, and lectures year-round and is home to the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene and the Alexander String Quartet.

The Sidney Mishkin Gallery, which has offered small, museum-quality shows for over a decade, mounts five shows annually.

The Sidney Harman Writer-in-Residence Program brings distinguished writers to the Baruch College campus every semester, including poets, playwrights, novelists, journalists, and essayists.
