New York University is home to a thriving interdisciplinary community  
of researchers in the visual sciences, spanning multiple  
departments.   A listing of faculty, sorted by their primary  
departmental affiliation, is given below.   Doctoral 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 interests.  Application deadlines vary per department, as  
indicated below.
