New York University is home to a thriving interdisciplinary community of
researchers in the Visual Sciences.  A listing of faculty, sorted by their
primary departmental affiliation, is given below.  PhD programs are
flexible, allowing students to pursue research across departmental
boundaries. Nevertheless, admissions are handled separately by each
department, and students interested in pursuing graduate studies should
submit an application to the program that best fits their goals and
