The New School
We don’t just expand conventional boundaries—we redraw them
Discover a new kind of university, one where scholars, artists, and designers come together to challenge convention and create positive change. Located in New York City, our university takes full advantage of its location in one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the world. Our colleges include Parsons School of Design, Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, the College of Performing Arts, The New School for Social Research, the Schools of Public Engagement, and Parsons Paris.
Since our founding in 1919, The New School has redrawn and redefined the boundaries of intellectual and creative thought as a preeminent academic center.
