We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Parsons School of Design enables students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a rapidly changing society. Students collaborate with peers throughout The New School, industry partners, and communities around the world and in New York City, a global center of art, design, and business.
Parsons School of Design has offered students innovative approaches to education since its founding in 1896. Today we’re the only American art and design school within a comprehensive university, The New School, which also houses a rigorous liberal arts college and a progressive performing arts school. Our undergraduate and graduate programs, offered through Parsons’ five schools, immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning. Here creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones while studying a range of university disciplines.
Parsons School of Design has an innovative academic structure composed of five schools:
The five schools house more than thirty degree programs as well as programs for young, adult, and professional learners. Through this multiple-school structure, Parsons is better able to effect social change while continuing its tradition of challenging conventional thinking.
Come to The New School and find campus life that celebrates distinctive voices. Build lifelong friendships with fellow students who share your interests, passions, and perspectives.
The New School is situated in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village, with an academic quad that extends from 11th to 16th Streets along Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Our urban campus places students at the center of one of the world's most vibrant and diverse communities, immersing them in the opportunities and conversations that are shaping the future. Rather than considering New York City to be merely the home of our university, we employ it as an extension of our campus and as an integral part of an educational experience that gives students access to the thinkers and doers who make the city a global cultural leader.
We help fund institutional scholarships, fellowships, grants, and stipends as part of a comprehensive financial aid program for students. We also participate in government grants, loans, work-study programs, and veteran programs.
As part of the admission process, students admitted to full-time degree programs are considered for merit-based institutional scholarships and grants.
