The School of the Arts (SoA) is Columbia's fine arts school.
Finding space for the school has long been an issue; the performing arts component was slated to move to the Lincoln Center area in the early 2000s, and a new School of the Arts Building was once planned as a major expansion of Prentis. Currently, the school is slated to be among the first to move to new quarters - specifically, a building nicknamed "The Lantern" - at the center of the new Manhattanville campus.
The School of the Arts has four internal "divisions", but these are not part of the university-wide designations. The four divisions, of which there is an MFA degree available for each, are as follows:
- Writing Division / Writing Program
- Visual Arts Division / Visual Arts Program
- Theatre Division / Theatre Program
- Film Division / Film Program
